The Liberty Christian Center II opened at this location in 2011. It is a daughter church of Liberty Christian at 5447 W. Addison.

I am doing research on my great grandfather, Aron Edstrom. He was one of the original members of Nebo Lutheran Church. I was wondering if you had any information on him. I also have some very old pictures of the church I would like to shtare with you. One is of the first church, which was wooden. Thank you, Paul Scalcini

Hello Paul, I saw your recent message to the Nebo Church regarding your great grandfather. I was going through a box of old papers from my father in law who passed several years ago. He was of Swedish descent and loved to collect things regarding where his family was from. In the box were post cards and other papers to a Mr Edward Edstrom who lived in Chicago on Dakin Street very close to the Nebo Church.There are several booklets from the church in this box also. I have hit dead ends trying to find who I can send all of this to as they are dated in the 1880s - 1940. There are also 2 bibles in Swedish one with Edward Edstroms name on it dated 1897. I would hate to just get rid of all of this I feel someone would like it. Have you had any reply to your message to Nebo Church? I see they are no longer open. Closed in 1998 I believe. If you have any info or if you would like to receive what I have please let me know. I do not know how my father in law came to possess all of this. Cindy
