Elgin Under Ice

Thousands of years ago most of North America was covered in a blanket of ice. These glaciers, particularly the Wisconsin Glaciation, shaped the geography of Elgin and impacted our lives in both dramatic and subtle ways. See the story of ice, Elgin, and the most important feature the glaciers left behind - the Fox River. More information Image credit: By Sbork (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0], via Wikimedia Commons
