History Documentaries

Join us on a fascinating journey through the Chicagoland Oasis as we explore the history of rest stops in the region. Starting with an overview of Chicago’s history as a transportation hub, we delve into the rest stops on the Erie Canal, the Galena and Chicago Union Railway, and the Illinois and Michigan Canals. We also examine the emergence of rest stops along the Chicago L and the rise of Chicago highways.
