Our quilt store is located inside a newly renovated 150 year old victorian house which has gone from being a hospital and doctor's office, to a boy's home, to an Italian restaurant, and now a quilt shop.
Dr. Rosecrance built the house in the late 1860's. He used it as his doctor's office and home and treated many wounded soldiers there. At that time, this house was also considered a main stopping point for horse drawn carriages carrying goods to Rockford. Later, it became the first Rosecrance home for boys. Rosecrance still exists today as Rosecrance Treatments Centers. They outgrew this house in the mid 1900's and now treat adolescents, youth, adults, and families for alcohol and drug abuse in multiple locations.
When the Rosecrance's moved out of this house, the Manzullo's moved in along with their two children, Don, who served as our area's Representative in Congress, and Frank, who ran the restaurant with his wife MaryAnn, until his retirement in 2004.
The building next door to the house, which now houses our classroom building, was the first restaurant the Manzullo's opened. It was a drive-in restaurant where they served pizza burgers and spaghetti. The Manzullo's later expanded into the first floor of their house with the addition of a bar and dining room.
