I can't remember the location of the home, but I'm sure anybody who lives in DG would know what I'm talking about. The house had thousands of lights and the guys garage used to have model trains in it. I used to love going to that house as a kid, but when I went back last year it was gone.
Does the family still live there? Or have they moved.
Also, does anyone remember a neighbors of thiers to the north used to have a sign that read "Ba Humbug"....what a douche!
Anyhow, any help with this would be great.

Yes, I remember that house off of 65th street. I dont think they do it anymore though. I went to find it last year, and they didnt have it going.

Thanks Marc, if you find out any info please let me know. I live about 30 mins from DG so I don't want to venture out there if the house isn't lit this year

The home that you are referring to is located on the northeast corner of 67th Street and Barrett. Barrett is approximately 6 streets west of Main Street.

I heard that the house you are reffering to was vandalized two different years and the family decided not to decorate after the second occurance. After the first year he was accepting donations to rebuild the displays. It was easy to find; just turn right at the first stoplight south of 55th St on Downers Grove Main street and go till you meet the crowd and saw the glow of lights. It was one of my family's holiday traditions. I was sorry to see it stopped.

I used to go to that home when I was younger with my family, and I have been trying to find it to take my kids now. That is sad to hear that they no longer decorate.
