Buffalo Grove Then and Now: The view from museum hill. Both of these photos were taken from the same spot. The first shows the view from the hill in about 1915, when it was the site of the Raupp farm. If you look very closely, you can even see the steeple of St.Mary's Church in the background. The second photo shows the same view today. Why does the first photo look so gloomy? It has to do with the negative used to make the picture. They weren't out photographing in a tornado!
