What can I say? I’m new school (kinda) with an old soul and I love how history has set the stage for the things we have today. With that said, I’m still seeking information, resources and people who can share their knowledge and experiences on Fun Town, Original Soul Train Dancers and Roller Skating in Chicago.
Fun Town Amusement Park
Fun Town was the last community amusement park, and it graced the South Side of Chicago for 30+ years. Following are some of the stories that have been posted on the site. Read the comments to bring back memories.
Original Soul Train Dancers from Chicago
I am seeking original Soul Train Dancers from Chicago who danced at the Board of Trade in Chicago for WCIU? If this is you or anyone you know, let’s chat.
Chicago Roller Skaters
I am seeking information on roller skating rinks, roller skaters and any other memories of Chicago roller skating history. My research has yielded great results and I’m not done yet. There is so much more I that needs to be discovered before I am satisfied with what I have.
However, if you would like to share your roller skating memories, complete the form on Real Skate Stories. It will take 10 – 15 minutes of your time. You will get credit for your contribution in the book. If you have ANY information at all, it would be greatly appreciated.
Do you have any information on Fun Town, Original Soul Train Dancers and Roller Skating in Chicago?
