Local History

Stories of the Civil War are passed down through generations in Downer's Grove. According to local lore, Downer's Grove houses a site that was once a pit stop on the Underground Railroad. The Reverend Orange Lyman's 19th century home in Downers Grove is said to be the place where slaves could seek sanctuary during their quest. History shows that the town was a center of abolitionist activity, giving weight to claims that the Underground Railroad passed right through town.

The Tivoli Theatre

Movie buffs love taking in a special event film at the Tivoli Theatre. The theatre first opened on Christmas Day in 1928. It was a gem of its time, with special Vitaphone sound equipment. After undergoing several changes and renovations throughout the years, the theatre is once again a hot spot for the locals. In addition to films, the theatre hosts ballets and stage productions. During the holidays, the theatre features classic films such as "White Christmas" and there is even caroling to music provided by the Wurlitzer Theatre pipe organ.
