New Book Explores History of the Heritage Center

More Info on This Book: The Irish American Heritage Center

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Irish American Heritage Center from local authors Monica Dougherty and Mary Beth Sammons. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of this home where history and cultural traditions are kept alive.

In 1976 a small group of Irish Americans was looking for a permanent place to celebrate and share their heritage and culture. After many fundraisers and Irish Family Days, they purchased an abandoned, graffiti-covered building on the northwest side of Chicago.

Over the past 25 years, a crew of passionate volunteers has transformed the derelict structure into a premier institution. Through dance, music, festivals, language, history, and art, the Irish American Heritage Center delivers on its mission as a nonprofit organization enhancing the life of every member and of the community. But for the vision of those original dreamers and the blood, sweat, and tears of the thousands of volunteers, it would not exist.

Highlights of Irish American Heritage Center:
• Profiles in courage
• The history of special events
• Dignitaries, stars and other notable visitors
• A tour of the center
• Celebration of all things Irish

Mary Beth Sammons is an award-winning journalist, author, and cause-related marketing specialist whose work appears frequently on AO L’s Health and ParentDish sites and in Psychology Today and the Chicago Tribune.
