Pleasantview Road, Washington Township, Illinois

We had rediscovered Pleasantview Road, north of our family farm, on the last trip we took to Washington-Deer Creek area. I went back and snapped some pictures of the farmhouses along the road. Below, off in the distance is the grain elevator at Cooper Station, which is rapidly filling with grain as the harvest proceeds in earnest, in between bouts of rain.This farm is impressive in the number of intact buildings left from the 19th Century.Even more fascinating is this wonderful find at the end of a long alley of trees. This beautiful Italianate farmhouse probably dates from the 1870's.
