Happy 125th birthday Bartlett! The election for the incorporation of Bartlett was held on February 28, 1891 and resulted in a 49-0 vote in favor of the motion. The incorporation became official on March 2, 1891.
Bartlett is celebrating its milestone birthday throughout 2016. Here are some photos from this year's National Night Out where the Village gathered more than 1500 people to attempt to break a Guinness World Record of most people blowing a train whistle simultaneously.
Earlier in the summer, at the Bartlett Lions Club 4th of July parade, the Village Board rode on the head float as grand marshals. Everyone was also invited to enjoy a slice of celebratory birthday cake at this year's Bartlett Heritage Days.
