On Saturday, representatives from the Lombard Historic Preservation Commission presented the owners of the house at 245 W. Maple St. with a plaque, designating it a local landmark site. The landmark site designation is limited to the exterior of the existing house—built circa 1914 and remodeled in 1961—and further limited to the building’s current location on the property at 245 W. Maple St. Father Anthony J. Boecker had the house built in order to serve as the first rectory for Sacred Heart Church. The Lombard Historic Preservation Commission voted at a meeting in April to designate the house as a landmark site, and the village board approved that at its June meeting. From left to right: Rita Schneider, chairperson of the Lombard Historical Preservation Commission; Iva (co-owner of the house); and Eileen Mueller, who is a member of the Lombard Historic Preservation Commission’s Local Landmarking Committee.
