The Original Rockford Nostalgic Website


If you enjoy Rockford history and my efforts to keep it alive for future generations to come, please consider making a donation to keep this website online. I have invested heavily in costs associated with this site such as material for content, domain name registration, which needs to be renewed on an annual basis, software used in building the site and website hosting fees paid for our servers, and Site Lock ™ to insure your safety and privacy while browsing the site knowing that it contains no malware or spyware.


I have a large collection of Rockford area items many which I have used on this site and I am always on the search for new material to add to the website for your pleasure and knowledge. Any money collected beyond the costs of website maintenance is reinvested in new materials for your viewing and educational experience. The banners that appear on this site are provided by me at no cost to the businesses that are connected to them, they are friends who started with an idea and turned it into a business. I am not paid any compensation for placing the banners on this site. I believe in a strong local economy and encourage you to shop local. Rest assured that I have never made a profit on this site and never expect to, I do it out of a love for our city, past, present the future, and sharing it with you and others.


My preferred method of accepting donations is through PayPal, if you do not have a PayPal account no account is needed as they also accept credit cards. If you would rather make a donation with a check, please contact me for mailing instructions at to assure that we recieve it.  I thank you for your support and hope that you continue to enjoy the website.
