    Freeport Senior High School

    by zrim Written Feb 16, 2003
    Home of the Mighty Pretzels

    Favorite thing: Built back in the day when high schools were designed to look like high schools.

    I spent three years in this building and did not have to repeat any grades. All in all, I'm pretty satisfied that the high school experience is now but a distant memory.

    an impressive steeple

    Favorite thing: Almost every street corner in the older part of town has a tavern and almost every block in the same parts of town has a church.

    Church on Sunday morning and a drink after work all week long.

    Lots of people of German heritage in this part of Illinois. They like their beer and they like their churches.

    Krape Park

    Waterfall at Krape Park

    Favorite thing: Not only a park, but also a palindrome. Probably the nicest place in town. Summers will find many folks enjoying family reunions; kids playing on all sorts of playground equipment; there is an old style mechanical carousel; plenty of ducks to feed; Sunday night concerts at the bandshell....well you get the idea. Small town living at its best.

    The Parks are Nice

    Twin Caves at Krape Park

    Favorite thing: Freeport has its problems as part of the rust belt. Old factories shut down or slow production and new businesses don't seem to fill the void. Real estate prices are depressed and it is my impression that jobs are not plentiful. However, the city has always had very nice parks. A place to get away from the stresses of life for a little while.
