Winter Fun in Warrenville

As we wait for some winter snow to hit the area tonight, enjoy this picture of women from the Chicago Telephone Company’s Margaret Mackin Hall enjoying a snowy, winter retreat in Warrenville.

The Chicago Telephone Company, the forerunner of Illinois Bell Telephone Company, constructed Margaret Mackin Hall, a two-story Colonial-style framed residence, to serve as a rest home for its convalescing telephone operators.  The Hall opened its doors in August of 1916; it was later taken over by the Cenacle Sisters in North America.  Although the Hall no longer stands, the winding road and steel-concrete arch bridge spanning the DuPage River are still visible from Batavia Road, just north of Butterfield Road.
