The suburban sprawl has eaten up most of the farms northwest of Chicago. But here and there,  you can still find vestiges of the area's agricultural past. 
We found this one in Lake County near Lincolnshire. This tattered barn and silos stand near a huge high school and subdivisions with large, fancy homes.
It is doubtful that moms in their mini-vans driving to soccer games or teenagers heading to school are aware of the history that this farm, and others like it, recall.
