Notes & Comments

Most recently, headquarters of Hughes Publishing. Although assessor shows year built as 1920, an early photo shows that it dates back to 1874/1876 as the Stern Building. An earlier iteration may have been the Woods Block mentioned in a newspaper advertisement from January 26, 1867 in Rockford Weekly Register-Gazette. It appears in numerous photos as C.F. Henry Clothing. (Historic photos courtesy of Doug Cohen.) Today the building is vacant. Suggested use: Commercial on ground floor. Excellent corner location.
