Weishaar Family Homestead, Illinois 1890s

Photo Details

Weishaar Family and Homestead in Park Forest, Illinois in the 1890s. I commissioned this painting by Disney artist Paul Wenzel in the early 1980's when I worked at the studio in Burbank. Paul did it as an independent artist and I personally paid him $300.. It is drawn from a projection of an old photo, and is accurate as to all details. The people in the picture are Weishaar family members. John Michael Weishaar proudly sits on his horse team. This farm was located directly east and south of the St Anne's Church and cemetery on Sauk Trail, on both sides of the trail. - John Michael Klawitter
