Then: Cafe under construction
Once a popular neighborhood restaurant known as Dunlap’s, the building tucked back in the woods just off of 123rd Street and Ridgeland Avenue was purchased by the College in 2005.
The growth of Trinity’s student body drove the need for a new bookstore and café. President Steven Timmermans said the purchase of the building would enable the College to accommodate the increasing number of students and simultaneously benefit the community.

The College consulted with the Palos Area Community Advisory Board whose mission is to develop mutually beneficial partnerships between area communities and Trinity Christian College. The PACAB made recommendations for maintaining the facility in a way that would meet Trinity’s needs and keep the building fittingly nestled in the neighborhood.

“Dunlap’s was a fixture in Palos Heights,” said Timmermans, “so the appeal was to find a way we could embrace a neighborhood institution in a manner that respected the area and was
consistent with our needs.”

The building underwent renovations until early 2008 when it was open to students, faculty, staff, and the community as the Bootsma Bookstore Café at Navajo Creek.
