North Willow Glen History Part 8 of 15: The 1940s

Of course World War II hits and North Willow Glen, like neighborhoods throughout the country, is consumed with the war effort. The postwar boom more or less completes the neighborhood; almost all lots have homes on them.
Leading up to the September 21st Willow Glen Founders Day Parade on Lincoln Avenue, NWGNA is providing readers with history about the evolution of our neighborhood, largely excerpted from Ken Ecklund's North Willow Glen Neighborhood Association Page.

We view this as our history and encourage you to share. Stories and photos of North Willow Glen are very welcome and with your permission and credit we would like to archive this information to improve our understanding of life in our neighborhood throughout the years. Please post here or reach us via e-mail at
