Houtzâ€™ 75th Anniversary
R.F. Houtz owners Rob Houtz (pictured) and his son-in-law Skip Mennerick, hosted their Elburn business’ 75th anniversary June 13, in Keystone Park on North Street, where the company moved last fall. The company originally sold combines, planters and other farming equipment; but in 1968, it began carrying and servicing outdoor maintenance machinery including the International Harvester line of Cub Cadet equipment. Since Houtz’s grandfather opened the company, it has been located on the same street, most recently at 245 E., North.
