Got milk? - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of Natoma, a farm north of Ogden. "George Robbins named his north side farm 'Natoma,' an Indian word for 'running water,' and began importing cows from Britain, some of the first Guernseys in the country. Trade journals later recognized the impeccable farm as the 'finest Guernsey dairy in Illinois.' This postcard of the twin-silo dairy barn dates from 1905."
