Once upon a time

Social network - Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," mentions that in 1872, O.J. Stough built a building at 11 N. Lincoln St. that had a school on the first floor and a meeting hall upstairs. "Until surpassed by the Hinsdale Club, Stough's Hall was the social and civic center of Hinsdale. The photograph was taken after 1904 when the building was purchased by the Swedish Baptist church."
