Soo-weet historical marker dedicated in DeKalb County

The DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association dedicates its 8th historical marker in the county Monday, this one recognizing the major contribution of DeKalb Swine Producers to the county's agricultural history. Located at 2045 Aberdeen Court outside Sycamore, the plaque stands on the site of the former swine operation near the intersection of Bethany Road and Sycamore Road (Route 23). Taking part in the unveiling are (left to right) State Rep.
