Newspaper Clippings for
November, 1933

from the pages of the Waukegan Times 3 November 1933
While sales of farm land throughout the country has shown a marked decline Lake county estates seem to be still in much demand and many large sales have been reported during the past few months.
Recent sales of acreage in the Lake county estate district north of Libertyville and development of several tracts into year-round country homes has stimulated interest in the Libertyville-Millburn district. A number of tracts have changed hands during the last six months and others are under negotiation. In addition brokers report an increase in the number of inquiries received regarding estate properties in the district.
R. Douglas Stuart, president of the Quaker Oats Company, bought through John Griffith, Inc., the former McClure farm of 120 acres, located on Onwentsia road, five miles north of Libertyville and one and one-half miles south of the Onwestsia Hunt Club at Millburn. This adjoins the 120-acre estate of F. Stanley Rickcords. Mr. Stuart has already built extensive barns and stables and remodeled the old farm house.
