Scattered across northeast McHenry County are small communities that have grown in close proximity to one another with the common thread of the Nippersink Creek. Each prides itself on maintaining a unique identity despite some common characteristics and shared resources. Richmond, Ringwood, and Spring Grove were all settled in the mid-1800s by European immigrants who farmed the land. The presence of the railroad helped them prosper, encouraging commerce. Wonder Lake was founded in the 1900s, formed by the damming of the Nippersink Creek and flooding farmland to produce the first and largest man-made lake in McHenry County. Today each of the four communities are thriving, maintaining the small-town friendliness of the past while stepping into the sophistication of modern-day life.

McHenry County, Illinois, is a picture-perfect farming community in the Heartland of Midwestern America. For nearly two centuries, a portion of the nation's food supply has come from this fertile land near the Fox River, and it has played a key role in the history of Chicago and the United States. Through the medium of historic photographs, this book captures the evolution of the people of McHenry County, from the mid-1800s to the second half of the twentieth century. These pages bring to life the people, events, communities, and industries that helped shape and transform McHenry County. With more than 200 vintage images, culled from three collections-the McHenry County Historical Society, the Crystal Lake Historical Society, the James Keefe Collection, and the personal collection of Don Peasley-McHenry County, Illinois, portrays life against a backdrop of international wars, national social struggles, and technological advances in an expanding world.
