Pre-I-pass - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of the Barto Van Velzer's home on Ogden Ave. "Located on the north side of the plank road near the county line, this was toll collector Van Velzer's home. Toll rates between Brush Hill and Naperville were 25 cents for a horse and carriage, 37 cents for a wagon with two horses, 10 cents for a horse and rider, 4 cents for cattle and 3 cents for hogs and sheep. For those who needed to stop overnight a fenced area was provided where stock could be corralled."
