Summary
  • Digital file from scanned print
  • Caption: In the 1920s people flocked from miles around by whatever means they could to a Barrington model electric home at 111 N. Haeger Ave. The kitchen featured the latesst innovations in washing machine, refrigerator, counter, electric window ventilator, ceiling lighting and its marvelous dangling socket to accommodate the new fangled gadgets...The home was built by the late Frank Trestic with building materials supplied by Lageshulte and Hager and was furnished by Plagge Furnishing Company. (our thanks to Donald C. Schroeder, Realtor, for pictures). -- This house was built circa 1925, by Frank Trestic, as a model of the first electric home. About 1935, it was purchased as an investment by Walter and Anna Plagge. In 1948 they sold it to their daughter, Esther and her husband, Russell Brewer, when they moved into Barrington from a farm on the Dundee-Huntley Rd. Sons David, John, and Robert were born to the Brewers while on the farm. Daughter Anita was born after their move to Barrington. Both Russ and Esther had passed on at the time of these photos. 10-10-06
