Notes
Survey number HABS IL-1154
Building/structure dates: 1892 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1900 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1853 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1988 demolished
Significance: The structures, known locally as "The Limestones," are the oldest extant commercial buildings in downtown Rockford...Although the are technically two separate structures, they have long been viewed in Rockford as a single entity and are therefore treated as such here. The Limestones are especially significant because Rockford's first bank and first library were housed there. The bank provided the financial leadership that, among other things, obtained the railroad linking Rockford with Chicago and built the Water Power District that was a key element in Rockford's becoming a leading manufacturing center...
