ABODE

Admirers of Beautiful Old Dwellings of Elgin

Help ABODE help Elgin home owners! Why?  ABODE has started a small grant program that is open to all homeowners in Elgin with spark funding of projects that support the historic integrity of their historic homes.  Monies earned from events like Concert in the Park concession stands and Spring Bowling events will be used to fund projects in our community.  The amount and number of grants offered each year will be based on the funding we have available each year.  ABODE has been active in the community by participating in events such as Great Unveilings, Neighborhood Work Days for beautification of historic homes, gardens and spaces, Adopt-A-Spot garbage clean up Route 31, participating in the annual 4th of July parade, beautifying the gardens surrounding the Rovelstad Pioneer Family Memorial statue near Walton Island, enjoying group day trips and much more. Help ABODE help Elgin by supporting our programs or by joining our group!

Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month except July and December.  Annual membership dues are $10 per person.  For questions, contact Jennifer Phillips, 224-588-7034 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
