The squirrel whisperer - This home, formerly at 219 E. Third St., was built by Deming Preston in 1887. When he noted the village did not have squirrels, he and other residents purchased several dozen pairs for the town. He was also a local bank president, volunteer fire chief, founder of the library and village president, according to Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale."
