Illinois Staats-Zeitung -- July 26, 1863[Turngemeinde to Build Gymnasium]
The Chicago Turngemeinde leased a lot, 101 by 160 feet, on North Clark Street, north of Melm's Garden, for a period of ten years. The lease contains a provision that the Turngemeinde may purchase the property within the specified time. The rental is $500 annually for the first five years, and $600 annually for the last five years. The Turngemeinde intends to erect a gymnasium on the lot, and the members are showing great enthusiasm for the enterprise. The Turner Company of the old Hecker Regiment has already subscribed for $645 worth of stock and sent the money in cash, promising to purchase more shares later.
The building committee is very active and will immediately take all steps necessary to get construction under way, since the building is to be ready for use before winter.
