The Town Of Crete, Illinois
Crete is a community that is as rich in charm as it is in history. Founded in 1836 by Willard and Diantha Wood of Vermont, and originally named Wood's Corners, the town was renamed after the biblical land of Crete and touted as the place where Chicago begins. Crete has flourished from its modest beginnings, yet still maintains its small town appeal.

The town of Crete was established along the Hubbard Trail a major trade route that ran from Vincennes, Indiana to Chicago. With the later addition of the railroad in 1869, Crete grew into a bustling village as many Chicago workers made Crete their home. Many descendants of Crete's early settlers from the mid-1800s still reside here, joined over the decades by more "modern pioneers" seeking a different quality of life - one simpler, less hectic, and quieter than that of the nation's third-largest city, which lies just 30 miles to the north. While the Village of Crete offers residents and businesses a tranquility and way of life far removed from the hustle and bustle of Chicago, it is nonetheless a community on the move.

Crete is located conveniently near all major modes of transportation. Illinois Route 1, in fact, runs north-south through the downtown business district. The Calumet Expressway (I-394) borders the village on the east and takes travelers and commuters right into Chicago. Close by are US Route 30 (east-west),I-57 (southwest-northeast), I-80 (east-west),I-94 (north to Chicago) and I-294 (the northwest Chicago bypass). Both major Chicago airports, as well as local reliever airports, are a short drive away. O'Hare International lies 50 miles to the north and Midway 25 miles. For an easy commute into the city of Chicago, a Metra station is just six minutes from the village. Passengers traveling longer distances use Amtrak's nearby full-service station.
