This farm used to be located at the SE intersection of what is now Copperfield Dr. and Old McHenry Rd., looking SE. Copperfield Dr. would cut from just to the left of the driveway, parallel to it, and through the smaller barn. Looking at the photo, the paths in the fields closely resemble the arc in Copperfield Dr. and also the intersection of Wedgewood Dr. is in a similar configuration (might be topographical). The telephone poles are still in the same configuration today. The farmhouse would now have the address, 2 Copperfield Dr. Hawthorn Woods.

One other thing of note: There is a historic school house a few hundred feet north up the road, so basically next door neighbors. It is located at 25689 N. Old McHenry Rd. on the east side of the road. It was built in 1904 and serves as a private residence today.
