Series: Hinsdale 150 | Story 11

The building located at 14 W. Hinsdale Ave. in downtown Hinsdale was originally designed by Hinsdale architect R. Harold Zook to be the Hinsdale post office in 1927, according to Sandy Williams' "Images of America - Hinsdale." The post office originally located on Washington Street had been destroyed by a fire. "The building still stands, though drastically altered. A remnant of the original roofline cab be found in the alley facade," Williams wrote. Today the building is home to several businesses, including Guaranteed Rate and the newly opened Everyday's a Sundae. (Photo Hinsdale Historical Society and Jim Slonoff)
