St. James Farm History Revealed: The East Farm of the Bollwegs

The Dupage County Forest Preserve District (Illinois) recently posted a history of the “East Farm” of Brooks McCormick’s St. James Farm. Frank Schlick, my Grandfather, was the Farm Operations Manager for many years. This blog includes a nice aerial photo of the farm during the seventies. In one photo the Schlick home can be seen including Frank’s red colored International Harvester pickup truck that he used when running errands.
