Rockford’s 10 year challenge, showing progress in the Forest City


Almost everyone with a Facebook page has either done or seen the 10 year challenge.  If you don’t know, it’s taking a picture of you from 10 years ago and putting a current one next to each other.  Transform Rockford got in on the fun using pictures of the city to show progress.
Here’s a couple of favorites. This a picture from a decade ago of an abandon looking brick building with weeds and grass growing everywhere.  Today it’s Prairie Street Brewing Co.  What a transformation that is, taking that old building turning it into a city hotspot.  The next biggest shocker is one is Old Main Street getting torn up to soon become a two way street.  Now it’s full of businesses, resyaurants and of course around the holidays, it’s where the famous Stroll on State takes place.
