Currently under development,

Dundee Township, Its Forgotten History, will be a premium quality, photographic and historical reference book that will provide information previously unpublished and for the most part, unknown to all. 


Book Cover 8.5x11-2.jpg



Foe the past two decades, author and historian, Phil Aleo, has been digging into newspaper articles over one hundred years old, interviewing residents that have roots in Dundee Township going back generations and researching data that goes back well over one hundred years. He has acquired photographs and histories that up until now, have not been made public. All this, and much more, will become available to all, in this unprecedented book regarding Dundee Township. This book includes the histories of Carpentersville, East and West Dundee and Sleepy Hollow.

The projected goal for this project now in the works, is to have this book go to press sometime in 2019. As this work progresses, the actual release date will be released.


If you have information or photos that have historical significance,

Phil would like to talk to you. Please contact Phil at
