Evening in Sleepy Hollow

The last rays of sunlight warm the surface of a pair of barns near my home. This farm is located in Sleepy Hollow, Illinois, a community that is trying hard to retain its small-town character at the same time it has built million-dollar homes. Sleepy Hollow is surrounded by suburbia. Within its boundaries are farms, forest, and housing developments. It has no retail space to speak of.

Just a mile from this farm is a subdivision of luxury houses. Passing through Sleepy Hollow is like watching time back up and move forward again.
