  • Collection: Hawthorn-Mellody Farms

Children climb atop the Noah's Ark construction at Hawthorn-Mellody Farm's amusement park.

Founded on Hawthorn Farm--land purchased by Samuel Insull--the one room schoolhouse served children of employees and servants for the Insull home in Lake County. It was demolished in the 1990s, but it had been out of use long before this time.

Children ride the steam train through the Hawthorn-Mellody Farms grounds while visiting the amusement park.

A view of Hawthorn-Mellody's western town complete with a bank, general store, and covered wagons.
