Green acres - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," shows Walker's farm. "Located where today's Ayres Avenue meets Garfield Avenue, Walker's farm stretched to the county line. There were no houses to the south for 8 miles, only prairie and a lone grove of trees. The street, 'The Lane,' was actually the lane that cows used to reach the barn. Years later, the barn's foundation was broken down and used in paving Ravine Road.
