Niles City Directory 1912

Is there a Niles City Directory from 1912 at your library? If not, could you direct me to an email contact where someone could locate the individual/business located at 1405 Furnace St. in the city in 1912? Thank you for your assistance.

Answer

The furthest we (Niles Library) go back is a 1926 directory.  You could try the to contact the Niles (IL) Historical Society (http://www.vniles.com/195/Historical-Society).  You can submit a "research request" through them @ http://www.vniles.com/FormCenter/Historical-Society-11/Research-Request-52.  But, keep in mind the Niles Historical Society was only founded in 1971. 

You could also try the Chicago History Museum (formally known as the Chicago Historical Society). 312.642.4600. 

Thank you for your inquiry.
