All aboard - According to Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," the mature trees along the county line attracted home buyers to Hinsdale's eastern edge. To accommodate the large homes on both sides of the railroad tracks, the Burlington Northern Co. agreed to stop on a signal if a station were built. In 1873, grateful homeowners built the stone station, naming it "Highlands" after its elevated location. Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old?
