My World (1537 words)
Steger was incorporated as a town in the late 1960's when the population reached about ten thousand I think.
The early Steger I grew up in and knew was a place that had a downtown with a Rexall drugstore that had about a twenty seat soda fountain and juke box with coin boxes in the dozen or so booths.
Steger was also split in half East and West by four sets of Central and Eastern Illinois Railroad tracks, and there was a classic old-time train station for passenger service a block off the downtown area.
