South Beloit turns 100

STATELINE NEWS--The city of South Beloit is having a birthday party, and everyone is invited.

A centennial celebration will be held Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 24 through Aug. 27. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday with a kick-off ceremony, followed by a future football program scrimmage, flag football alumni game and park dedication at South Beloit City Park.

“They’re going to kick off the centennial and dedicate the field and the park,” John Patrick of the South Beloit Historical Society said. “(The park) has never had a name other than South Beloit City Park, but we’re going to put up a dedication sign.”

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Growing up east of Janesville’s Traxler Park, Rob Bier, 51, explored the city by bike, stopping to hike along the banks of the Rock River downtown where the foundations of a brick building stood, or trek wooded lots dotted with old bottles behind Mercy Hospital or the ice arena.

Years later, as he learned more about the city’s past, he realized his childhood adventures shared a common denominator.
