Once upon a time

Vintage hotels in the village - Hinsdale used to be the home of a few hotels, according to Sandy Williams' book, "Images in America - Hinsdale." "In 1851 with business booming at Castle Inn, Fuller built a second hotel across the street on the north side of the plank road. (Ogden Avenue) This hotel, shown here in 1869, was known over the years as Fullersburg Tavern, the Deutches Gast Haus and the Grand Pacific Hotel. Often both inns in Brush Hill were filled to capacity, requiring some families to sleep outside." Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old? We'd love to share it with our readers.
