Happy Birthday Schaumburg!  You turned 60 this year on March 7, 2016 and we’re happy to celebrate with you!

In honor of your birthday year, we’re doing a monthly blog posting based on some of our favorite things about you.

This month we’d like you to share your favorite, neat tidbit about Schaumburg that others may not know.  

Maybe it’s a spot others might be unfamiliar with?
