9780738594323: Hinsdale (Images of America)

In 1858, the town of Fullersburg, centered at what is now York Road and Ogden Avenue, petitioned the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad to develop a western route that would pass through their community. The track was eventually built, but finding the topography at Fullersburg unsuitable, the route curved one mile to the south through vacant prairie. Enterprising entrepreneur William Robbins seized this opportunity, purchasing land along the new route and creating a community: Hinsdale. Designed to be a commuter suburb, Hinsdale’s clean air, safe streets, and large lots have made it the perfect choice for Chicago business leaders since its beginning. It remains without industry, reflecting the comfortable well-being of its residents. Tree-shaded streets, well-maintained homes, and a historic downtown provide a charming character to this sophisticated yet bucolic village.

About the Author:

The Hinsdale Historical Society has provided the photographs for this book, a story of the people and events that have made Hinsdale special. Author Sandy Williams volunteered for 30 years with the society archiving the lives and triumphs of early residents, whose courage, faith, and determination provided the foundation for the village. It is a story worth telling . . . and knowing.
