Trim and I went to Elgin, Illinois a few years back. The factory if you are not aware was torn down and a shopping mall built on the site. There is the astronomical observatory which I think is the only large building surviving. Lots of stuff ended up in the Elgin History Museum. Worth a visit if you are ever in the area.

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
