Palatine: Past and Present Palatine: Past and Present Palatine: Past and Present

Palatine Past and Present. Where the Music Room stands today at 26 N. Brockway Street, 112 years ago was Ike Blum's Travern. 

Ike, or Isaac Blum was a Palatine native but moved to Arlington Heights as a child. When he came back to Palatine, he bought the tavern in 1900 and ran it until 1917. 

Heading south on Brockway, there was a drug store next to Ike Blum's Tavern and a hardware store furthest south, which was owned by W.H. Brockway.
