Levee and floodplain farm at Hennepin-Hopper, 1992

Levee and floodplain farm at Hennepin-Hopper, 1992

Putnam County

This photograph was taken a few years before restoration of the Hennepin-Hopper Lakes. The area was a highly productive farm in 1992 and for many years before that, and is now a complex of highly productive wetlands and lakes (see other photographs in this gallery). The Illinois River is beyond the levee to the left of the trees.
