Hocketta drug store, a hotel, a Methodist Church and a parsonage, and a school.
It even had a town band. Landes tells the following Iroquois - Her (6) & Kings County (2) - 1609 (CDr about how Glenwood got the name Pitch-In. It seems there was a disagreement between two workers, Dick Ammerman and Moses Spain.
One rolled up his sleeves and dared the other to fight, but both were reluctant. The bystanders, seeing them hesitate, called out, "Pitch In, boys; pitch in! The town followed the road north and south. From north to south on the west side were the homes of Silas Brock, John Herman, the general store, the Herman blacksmith shop, Dr. Hockett, Bill Scott, and Henry Childs.
On the east side were the Harveys, the Koglers, the Turner Drug Store, the hotel, the Methodist church and the parsonage. Going east on the south was the Hamilton home, and further east on the north side, the Henneinke farm which is still owned by the family and operated by Lester Henneinke.
Isaac Hamilton was one of the outstanding citizens of Pitch-In. Most of the early settlers in Pitch-In were of English or Scotch descent, and were Quakers or Methodists, but during the latter part of the eighteen eighties settlers of German Lutheran descent came into the community, many coming from Crete, Beecher, and Eagle Lake in Will County.
Among these were John Herman who opened the blacksmith shop, operating until when he moved it and his family to Cissna Park. Also, Wilhelm Knake, who opened a tile factory neat where the old mill had been on the Hamilton property down by Mud Creek, where clay for tile was available. Since much of this land had a tendency to be swampy, tile were much in demand.
Knake operated this factory until his death in It is interesting to note that the name Ash Grove stems from the fact that a big ash tree had fallen across Mud Creek in this vicinity, and, as there were absolutely no other ash tees around there, Mr. Wesley Harvey, who was postmaster at that time, had the inspiration to name the post office Ash Grove.
Mail came out from Milford three times a week at this time, by whatever means of conveyance that could be used, because of the weather and the roads. One of Iroquois County's first murders took place in Pitch-In in the early s.
Rosa Hamilton was to be married and the party was assemble at the Hamilton home for the ceremony. A former suitor rode up and asked to see the bride, but the groom went out instead to see what was wrong, and was shot dead, while the murderer raced away. He left the community and was not seen by the residents of Pitch-In again, Album).
Another interesting fact is that the first township election was held in the school house on April 1, What caused Pitch-In to decline into the ghost town it is today?
It was the building of the railroad spur south of Pitch-In, and a new village, Cissna Park starting there. Most of the business people moved their families to the new town, and Pitch-In died.

To remedy this, they were allowed to choose equivalent land between six and fifteen miles either side of the right of way.
The railroads began actively promoting the sale of the land grants, sending land agents to the eastern states and Europe. Speculators and settlers were attracted to the area. In the early 's, many German settlers came to Ash Grove Township.

Last Indians Seen in Many of the earlier settlers, mostly those who lived settlers, mostly those who lived to the north of Artesia, found places where the Indians had camped before them.

The Town of Goodwine In the 's a railroad was laid west from the main lie connecting Milford, Wellington, and Hoopeston to Chicago and points south, providing rail service to Goodwine, Claytonville, and Cissna Park, which were just being established.
In a track branching off at Woodland from the same mainline, known as the Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad, intersected the other branch line at Goodwine giving rail service from Chicago to St.
Tracks had to be maintained, and Goodwine became somewhat of a railroad town with a section crew working out of it, and several of the section men living here as well as the station agent. Dan Harline was the first agent. The depot was located in town near Iroquois - Her (6) & Kings County (2) - 1609 (CDr crossing for several years but later moved to the intersection of the railroads west of the town.
Then, on Easter morning, March 25,the depot burned to the ground and was never replaced. Railroads were becoming more mechanized, and stations were being eliminated along the line.
Radio and telephones were replacing telegraphy. A small business section was established north of the east-west railroad. An elevator was organized inchartered as a cooperative, and is still operating. It is the oldest cooperative elevator still in business in Illinois.

The town was plotted to have a north-south street east of the main street on the south side of town. It was never utilized for the town was not destined to grow to where it was needed.
A Methodist church building and land were also given by William Goodwine and it is still in existence. It was the last one-room school closed in Iroquois County. Only the elevator remains as a business still in operation in Goodwine. There is a fertilizer plant north of town, and a recreational facility, Timbered Meadows, for camping on Mud Creek, and the post office still remain. Goodwine is mainly a settlement of older people.

There was no author noted. Transcribed as written and printed in the paper. Just a diversion from the usual chronicle of news. We wonder how many Gilmanites have taken this pleasant auto trip.
The proximity of its distance makes it commonplace and yet lovers of nature in its many manifestations of interest to mankind can find topographical, botanical, historical and even zoological realities that ought to thrill and interest everyone. Get in your car for a little outing some Sunday afternoon in these summer months and take a trip in a southeasterly direction, not that you will see better farms, buildings or people in that direction from Gilman, but nature has made a phenomenon a little different in that direction than any other.
With an evening lunch packed in your basket, one as we know, will drive by he Gilman cemetery, the beautiful natural reposing home for the mortal remains of so many of th illustrious and honored men and woman that have made Gilman famous. Across the road one will note that he is passing by a farm that is famous among agriculturists and readers of the Prairie Farmer.
It is owned and farmed by Capt. Mann, and later and at the present time owned by his son, Frank I. Years ago on his same road such honored men as Robt.
And Wm. Near the banks of Spring Creek there once stood the log school house, one of the first built in the county, and where our old friend John Cromnecker went to school as a boy. A little further there stood at one time the great tree monarchs in the country. A tree that could be seen towering all other trees for miles around. The ruthless hand of man destroyed this great monarch for a cause that is almost inexplicable.
As you cross the Spring Creek on the east, going by the Harm LongMart Davis and Charley Benjamin farms, Charley's farm was once owned by a sturdy young son of old Erin by the name of Stuart Young, nine of whose ten children taught school in this county. One son became a distinguished statesman and jurist in the state of Ohio. A quarter of a mile west is a site of historical interest. Indian legends show that on the high banks of Spring Creek was once located a village of Delaware Indians and later he Illinois.
