Addison – Village of Friendship
In 1984, in commemoration of the Village's 100th Anniversary of Incorporation, a book was published, called Addison – Village of Friendship. It was researched, compiled and written by members of the Addison Centennial Commission. Copies were sold within the community, and the Addison Public Library still has a copy in circulation.
