1XSDAI.K, Du Page County, Illinois, is located 17
miles from Chicago, on the Chicago. Burlington
and Ouincy Railroad, and lias at present
about 2000 inhabitants
The town was laid out by Mr. \Vm. Robbins and Mr.
( ). J. Slough in 1866, and its beautiful situation on high
rolling ground, covered with line shade trees, its abund-
ant supply of good and pure water, natural drainage, and
easy accessibility to the City make it one of the most
desirable places of residence in the vicinity of Chicago.
Hinsdale has a goodly number of Substantial Build-
ings, including Public Schools. Churches and Stores, and
many elegant Private Dwellings
The houses are built well back from the street, leav-
ing spacious and nicely kept lawns in front. The streets
are wide and are lined with trees of many years growth,
while no unsightly buildings mar the beauty of the place.
The accompanying illustrations will serve to give the
reader a fair idea of this pleasant -suburban town, they
are exact reproductions of photographic negatives, made
during the past summer and autumn, and are as truthful
as a good camera and line lens could make them.
