Home away from home - This photo is from Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale." The Fresh Air Association was one of Hinsdale's most successful philanthropies. The association provided women and children from Chicago's poor neighborhoods "a vacation in the country." The association was housed in the Marvin Fox home, which was at first loaned to the group and then became its permanent location. The home still stands at 32 W. Ogden Ave, one house east of the northeast corner of Lincoln Street and Ogden.
