An interesting bit of history about the village of Wood Dale: In 1834, one of the founding families, the Lesters, arrived in the area from New York. They were heavily involved in the community, as were their children. The youngest, Frederick Lester, had his leg amputated in a threshing machine, but he went on to become a prominent businessman who was also responsible for establishing the train depot, post office and cheese-making business in town. (At that time, it was known as Lester’s Station, or simply Lester.)
In 1890, the townsfolk wanted to build an inn next to the train station. Lester said no, because he wasn’t a drinker and didn’t want to encourage such activity. So what did the people do? They waited until winter when an ice storm came through, and moved the station along the tracks to a different location. But Lester took the move well — in fact, he arranged for a house to be built near the new spot, so that the stationmaster would have a place to live.
