Early Elgin achieved fame for butter and dairy which it sold to the city of Chicago. Gail Borden himself established a condensed milk factory here after the Civil War and our local library is named in his honor. The dairy industry became less important with the arrival of the Elgin Watch Company.
Today, in spite of the many challenges put before us in this year 2020 Elgin continues to thrive. Right along with it is the decades-old company Tom’s Plumbing for all your plumbing needs in the upcoming year of 2021. From your friends at Tom’s Plumbing Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
