The building was built in 1958 in order to construct a Medical Center now located on the Algonquin Blacktop. Upon completion of the building the governor, then at that time was William J. Stratton, came to Huntley to Help in the dedication services. In the I960's the building was occupied by a Doctor and Den¬ tist. The Doctor left town and since then the town has been left without a practicing physician. The building is now occupied by a beau¬ tician and a dentist. All of the fund from the pancake dinner will be used for the Medical Center. Any dona¬ tion will be appreciated. Residents are asked to save their syrup em¬ pty bottles for use at this event.
