Vacation destination - According to Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," KLM was once a vacation spot. "Alexander Legge, president of International Harvester, and his wife, Katherine, purchased 52 acres on South County Line Road in 1915 for use as a summer residence and farm. After Katherine died suddenly in 1924, Legge dedicated this property in her name for use as a retreat by the female employees of Harvester. Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old?
