The original I-Pass - Toll collector Van Velzer's home was located on Plank Road (Ogden Avenue) near the county line. Back in the day the toll rates between Brush Hill (Hinsdale) and Naperville were 25 cents for a horse and carriage, 37 cents for a wagon with two horses, 10 cents for a horse and rider, 4 cents for cattle and 3 cents for hogs and sheep. This is from "Images of America - Hinsdale" written by Sandy Williams.
