All About Hinsdale, Illinois
In 1863, the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroads changed their minds. They decided to run the new train track on vacant land one mile south of the town of Fullersburg, located at what is now York and Ogden. This vacant land became the future village of Hinsdale .
Knowing of the railroad's plans, William Robbins purchased the surrounding land. He tamed the wild prairie by building roads and homes and planting trees. The following year the first school was built. William Robbins is known today as the founding father of Hinsdale.
Along with a few land developers, the small town drew the wealthy class from Chicago, German and Swedish merchants, and others. Hinsdale was incorporated in 1873.

Both the land and facilities were donated to Hinsdale in 1973.
