Did you know Merz Apothecary in Lincon Square is Chicago's oldest drugstore, dating back to 1875? Or that Lake View High School is the city's oldest operating public school?

You would if you were a member of the Ravenswood/Lake View Historical Association.

The Ravenswood and Lakeview neighborhoods have a rich history, kept alive by the members of RLVHA.

The group will hold its annual meeting March 14, 7 p.m., at Sulzer Regional Library. The meeting is open to all who are interested.

Following the election of officers and board members, David Witter, author of "Oldest Chicago," will share interesting and little-known stories about Ravenswood and Lakeview.
