South Holland  (IL)   (Images of America)
Settled by Dutch pioneers in 1847, South Holland has known many namesóDe Laage Prairie, Holland Bridge, and Low Prairie. It even earned the title of ìOnion Capital of the Worldî thanks to the early Dutch settlers who farmed the areaís fertile soil, planting cabbages and onions. They also brought traditions and values that have remained a fundamental part of the communityís life. South Holland is a visual history of this proud community, told through photographs from the late 1800s to the present day. In close to 200 images, including ones of youngsters gathered by Thorn Creek, hard-working farmers, and the townís many places of worship, this collection provides a fresh portrayal of an interesting and intriguing place.
