Carlock, Illinois

These are photos from the town of Carlock in McLean County, Illinois. As a librarian, I had to take a photo of the library (which was closed over the lunch hour). I had discovered that Abe Lantz, my great grandfather, was postmaster of Oak Grove which became Carlock. I know this was not the post office at that time and that it was run out of his store. The last photo is of the Christian Church which is where the family attended after he married Laura Lucy Taylor. (He was Amish before that time, and Laura was Methodist.)
