Zip Code Day 60520 Pictorial Postmark June 5 2020

First, the Zip Code Day 60520 Pictorial Postmark is for Hinckley, IL. Today may be feeling like Deja Vu with the theme of our post! Secondly, yesterday we were looking at another Date Meets Zip Pictorial Postmark.

The Hinckley Historical Society is commemorating Zip Code Day 60520, where today’s date is the same as the zip code.

Over at the Hinckley Business Association, they share about Village History; I’m including this partial excerpt.

“The Village of Hinckley has a rich and proud history. Dating back to the 1830s, prior to becoming settled, Mr. Hollenbeck (who lived near Ottawa, IL) was journeying through this territory. He found a fine grove of trees west of the present Village of Hinckley, and named the grove after the squaws who were tending camp there. … Hinckley was founded in the 1870s by Francis Hinckley, President of the Chicago and Iowa Railroad. The rail line was placed one-half mile east of the Village of Squaw Grove and the town was renamed Hinckley…”
