Veterans Park also breathes of history as well. As the development of Veterans Park progressed and the scrub growth was cleared away a State of Illinois Archaeologist gleamed as he saw the east tree line for what it truly was. Estimated to be 125 years old, this tree line stands as one of the only remaining examples of an old hedge fence in Illinois. The earliest settlers would plant young hedge trees around the perimeter of their fields and as those trees grew they would intertwine, serving as a fence to contain their livestock within their farmland.
