Once upon a time

This old home - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of the home that was located in the 300 block of South Washington Street. "German born building contractor Adolph Froscher arrived in Hinsdale in 1869. A talented craftsman, Froscher built commercial properties and fine homes for many prominent residents. This home built in 1888 at 314 South Washington Street, still stands today, remaining in the family since the day it was built." Editor's note: the home was torn down in 2017.
