The Windborn Group is being recognized by Landmarks Illinois for their preservation work to revitalize the Carnegie Library into a co-working space and technology training center. The Tech Center is a partnership between multiple groups, including High-Tech Small Town, to provide new life for the iconic Aledo building.
The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Award for Adaptive Reuse will be presented in Chicago on Friday, October 22nd to the Windborn Group, led by former Aledo residents Crista and William “WJ” Albertson.
This designation and award highlight the opportunities in Aledo to celebrate our history while building the city for future generations. The City is grateful to all involved for their work on this project.
