Kane County Poor Farm -- now a golf course

Settler's Hill Golf Course  (owned by the Kane County Forest Preserve District)
"The clubhouse, overlooking the practice green, is a renovated dairy barn dating to the property's turn-of- the-century roots as Kane County's "poor farm." And prior to its current incarnation, this was the site of the county's solid waste landfill."
