Got milk? Part 2 - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of Sedgeley Farm. "The barns and workers' homes at Sedgeley Farm, show here about 1900, were also wired for electricity and fitted with prototypes of Western Electric devices. The original farm of 90 acres east of Madison Street grew to 1,100 acres, reaching beyond County Line Road. In addition to the 230-head model dairy, Sedgeley Farm raised champion French coach horses, stabling over 100 at its peak."
