Once upon a time

Before Hinsdale - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of the front inside cover of Hugh Dugan's book, "Village on the County Line," which was published in 1949. "At the map's center is what is now York Road and Ogden Avenue. The plank road (Ogden Avenue) is shown running east to west through Brush Hill." For more information on the early days of Hinsdale, see the story on Page 7 and the editorial on Page 10.
