Down on the farm - From Sandy Williams' book "Images of America - Hinsdale," we learn Marvin Fox arrived from Vermont in 1852 with his wife and 10 children. "Homesteading 160 acres southwest of Brush Hill, he soon added another 160 acres to his farm, planting the first corn on the prairie that was to become Hinsdale. His home, shown here, still stands on the sought side of Ogden Avenue at Lincoln Street." Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old? We'd love to share it with our readers.
