About this Article

The Meadowdale subdivision in Carpentersville began in 1955 when local farmer Leonard Besinger built small, affordable homes for returning veterans and their young families. He sold 700 houses in the first two years and strong sales continued. Today, through Homes by OTTO, many of these homes are being completely rebuilt.
