Mexican Railroad Boxcar Communities will be at 3 p.m. at McHenry County Historical Society. Between 1910 and the 1950s in the United States, particularly the Midwest, railroads employed a large number of Mexican immigrants to lay track. These immigrant railroad workers and their families literally lived on railroad property, in railroad boxcars and “section houses,” year-round. The program not only underscores the important contributions these laborers made to the area – with the use of photos, maps, political cartoon and other period images. It also will compare anti-immigrant practices employed then with the current climate. All programs are at the society museum, 6422 Main St., in Union. Tickets are available in the office, online or at the door. A $10 donation is requested for individual programs. For more information, call (815)-923-2267 or visit
