Clintonville - Henry W. Eastman, Postmaster
Elgin - Geo. W. Renwick, Postmaster

CLINTONVILLE VILLAGE, in this township, is a large and flourishing place, well located on both sides the Fox River. There are about six hundred and fifty inhabitants, and the water power here is as considerable as at any point on the stream. There are also two distilleries, two flour mills, one paper mill, and a sash, blind and door factory, besides several good stores. This place is three and one-half miles south of Elgin, and 39 from Chicago. The Galena U.R.R. passes through it. It is a handsome location, and the district, highly cultivated, possessing all the advantages of a well settled place in Religious and Educational Institutions.

is situated near the centre of this township, and has quite a considerable business in proportion to the population. It is beautifully situated, and is said to be "one of the most healthy localities; and for thrift and liveliness it equals any of the villages in the Eastern States." There are, in this place, two Churches, one Methodist episcopal, with a society of 100 members, and purpose shortly erecting a still more commodious church; the other is a Close Communion Baptist, a very fine church, which will seat 500 persons, and have 75 communicants. There is also a commodious Public School and besides these buildings there are two blacksmith shops, one wagon shop, grain warehouse and a hotel.

LODI Village is beautifully situated, and laid out at right angles, on the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad, 50 miles from Chicago. It is in the southwest corner of Kane County, and extends to the county line road between Kane and DeKalb, one mercantile house being in the said county of DeKalb. It was commenced in 1853, and contains an elegant school house, which is kept open, for pupils of all grades, at least 10 months in the year.
