Then and now

Series: Hinsdale 150 | Story 21

This building located at 53 S. Washington St. was home to the Hinsdale Post Office from 1899-1926, when the building was destroyed by fire. Architecturally significant features of the new building include full-height stone pilasters topped by ball finials and a balustrade brick cornice. The site was home to a Walgreens at some point and today is home to J. McLaughlin. (Hinsdale Historical Society photo/Jim Slonoff photo)
