Milestone anniversary for Ladd gets attention of state lawmakers

Posted by wlpo on May 29, 2015

While debating the budget and pensions, the Illinois House also had time to pass a resolution in honor of Ladd.

The Frank Mautino-led resolution congratulates Ladd for its 125th anniversary which will officially be celebrated June 7th. The village was founded in 1890 and was named after George Ladd of Peru. Ladd was originally a construction camp settled by railroad company workers.

The final part of the resolution even mentions Ladd being known for its fried chicken.
