Once upon a time

Early transportation - It's hard to imagine traveling by horseback and carriage through town, as Hinsdaleans did when the village was first founded. According to Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale" "The livery stable was situated just north of the tracks, west of Washington Street. Liveries met all trains and 10 ride tickets could be purchased for $1. Some villages boarded their horses at the stable, others rented buggies for special occasions. This horse-drawn bus was rented for the day for a family picnic."
