110 years of history.

"The erection of the magnificent Willdon block, which is far in advance of the present needs of Hoopeston, shows the faith the builder has in the future of the city. Hoopeston will shortly grow to demand the store rooms and offices and the fact that the rooms are here will create the demand. Mr. McFerren has made his fortune entirely in Hoopeston, and rightly believes that Hoopeston is entitled to the benefit its rightful expenditure will bring." - The Chronicle, Thursday, February 14, 1907.
