BICENTENNIAL YEAR

 

1808 - 2008 (200 YEARS ADDISON)

 

Happy Birthday Addison.  You are now 200 years old.  You have survived through two centuries of change.  Imagine for a moment that if the buildings on Main Street could talk, what a story they could tell.  From horse and buggy and dirt street to the automobile and over $4.00 per gallon for gasoline and ten thousand vehicles a day traveling through the Village of Addison.
