From Mike Gallery - Haeger's Bend - Algonquin, Il.

Here's a picture of Haegers Bend I ran across this evening.  I grew up in a house right on the narrowest part of the river where the sharpest bend you see is.  I can't guess when this was taken, I'm going say it was in the 1960's.   Those of you familiar with Haegers Bend now know that all the empty land you see is chock full o' houses.   That empty land was not part of Haegers Bend.  Haegers Bend ends at the bridge that crosses over the channel.   The Starretts used to own all that land at the bottom of the picture.  Caroline Starrett lived in the house to the left of the factory which made something.  They were discreet about whatever it was. - Mike G.
