Devil in the details - Myrta Holmes, the former wife of serial killer H.H. Holmes, rented various homes throughout the village, including this one at 212 N. Lincoln St. in 1912. She moved to Hinsdale with her daughter in 1896, the year her estranged husband was executed. According to Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," Holmes taught third and fourth grades at least 15 years in the Hinsdale Public School system. H.H. Holmes was featured in Erik Larson's book "The Devil in the White City."
