We ❤️ Richmond history! The Covell House, Broadway & William Sts., Richmond. Circa 1900. Charles Simes of Hebron was hired around 1900 to build this home for L.B. and Anna Moore Covell. The Covell House is an example of Queen Anne style architecture detailed with some elements of Colonial Revival. The home exemplifies the Queen Ann style with its external ornamentation, veranda, sprawling edifice with stone foundation, huge chimney, leaded and beveled glass windows, seven gables with “gingerbread” and ornate interior details. Anna was the eldest of nine children of William and Eliza Moore from Solon Mills. L.B. was the son of Charles and Phebe Covell who were farming settlers just northwest of Richmond. L.B. and Anna were already in their late forties when they built this house. They were childless. L.B.‘s primary business ventures were agricultural interests, He was the township supervisor for 22 years and director of the school board for 46 years. Anna was a school teacher. They lived in this house until their deaths. After Anna Covell's death in 1926, her sister Edith Turner inherited the entire estate. From the duration of the estate, the home was rented. During the 1930s the home was used as a funeral parlor ( Ehorn Funeral Home ), but by the 1960s the home returned to single-family use with no additional commercial functions. In 1965, the house was sold to Walter Mason, who started the restoration process. In 1986, the Drabants brought the home and continued restoring the property. The Covell house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. It was also plaqued by the Historic Sites Committee of MCHS in 2000. Photo credit: McHenry County Historical Society

A 911 dispatcher is generally the first point of contact, a true first responder, and an unseen hero. A dispatcher’s job is a complicated one. It is exciting, rewarding, fulfilling, and becomes a way of life. It is also stressful, exhausting, thankless, and forgotten by so many. So we are sending a special ‘Thank you’ to our 911 operators as we celebrate all of their hard work this week! Thank you for keeping us safe! National Telecommunication Week 2018
