10.34 NK This picture of East Washington Street was taken around 1915. On
the left is St. Peter's old school. Next door Is the convent. Further down
the 
same side of the street, is the Baehrlng farm. The five houses on the right
make up what was referred to as Beine's Subdivision. This area has been the
sight of substantial development starting with Scenic Heights in 1954. Glenn
Hill, Woodside Heights and St. Paul's subdivisions are now all to the left
of East 
Washington Street. Cobblestone Coiner and the V\liaoe Square Shopping 
Center are to the right.

    Baruch Schleisinger Weil purchased 1,950 acres of land in the Town of
Polk from the U.S. Government at a cost of 25 cents per 
acre. On 527 acres he plotted the Village of Schleisingerville. The land
was placed in his son's name and it wasn't until 1853 that 
B. S. Weil's name was added as an owner of many of the lots in Schleisingerville.
The original lots in the village were valued at $1. 
By 1852 the lot value reached $10. In 1869, the year the village was incorporated,
lot values ranged from $15-$30 and by 1880 the 
values ranged from $25-$40. 
    The 1860 census lists Baruch Schleisinger Weil's value of real estate
owned at $100,000. This value far exceeded that of any 
other land owner in the area.
