The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest has canceled its Dec. 4 Holiday Open House party, according to executive director Frank Lipo. The open house would be the first chance for many Oak Parkers to see the society’s new location at the historic Cicero Township Firehouse building at 129 Lake St.

The Historical Society recently relocated from its long-time headquarters at Pleasant Home, 217 Home Ave., and is still unpacking from the move, Lipo said in an email.

“We thought we were rushing too much to show it off instead of calmly preparing for regular hours of operation in 2017,” Lipo said.
