Once upon a time

First on the block - The Craftsman-style home at 510 N. Lincoln St. has held its ground and gained neighbors since its 1911 construction as the first home built in that corner of Hinsdale. The land was previously part of the Ayres Farm, sold as development became a more profitable enterprise than farming in the growing suburb. The Gjeldum family purchased the home 10 years ago intent on preserving it while making some 21st-century updates. See the story on Page 5. (photo courtesy of the Hinsdale Historical Society)
