Once upon a time

Early settler - This photo is from Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale." "Alfred Walker, looking for property to farm, arrived in the area from Vermont in 1854. He purchased 300 acres from Benjamin Fuller, including the Grand Pacific Hotel and Castle Inn. Walker operated the inns for a few years, living at Castle Inn while building his house and farm just south of Fullersburg." Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old?
