The Town Of Westmont, Illinois
ChicagoRelo.com is your source for information on Westmont. If your moving to Westmont or just visiting, you will find all kinds of information on real estate, schools, areas, parks, churches, crime, things to do, places to visit, local businesses, dining, and much more!Westmont is a warm and friendly village found in the heart of the western suburbs of Chicago. With a unique blend of hometown charm and a thriving business community, Westmont truly merits its nickname "The Progressive Village". The pride of the village is most clearly evidenced by the people who call Westmont home. Their commitment to the community is demonstrated by their willingness to get involved and volunteer with the schools, churches, social clubs, and local government of Westmont.

On the date of Westmont's Diamond Jubilee 75th Anniversary, November 10, 1996, more than 300 residents attended the dedication of the village's new Police-Fire Facility. Illinois State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka was present for the celebration and had this to say - "I see all the towns, villages, and municipalities in the State of Illinois. All 12 million people, all 102 counties; and I can truly tell you, Westmont is a standout."

The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 contributed to the beginnings of Westmont as surely as the wind and flames reduced much of the city to ashes. Determined to avoid such catastrophes in the future, Chicago's civic leaders voted to require that new buildings be built of stone and brick. Shortly thereafter, one William L. Gregg traveled west on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad seeking a place to begin a brick manufacturing business. He chose a site that was both rich in clay, needed in the making of his bricks; and high in elevation, so that the trains carrying the heavy bricks would travel downhill on their way to Chicago. He named his business the Excelsior Brick Company.

By 1890, Chicago's building boom was over and the brick company went out of business. Though there were no more brick deliveries, the CB&Q continued to make stops at the point known as "Greggs" to pick up milk from the local farmers. "Greggs" did not experience any significant development until the end of World War I when land speculator Arthur T. McIntosh came to the area and began buying up property with visions of creating a town. By the spring of 1920, McIntosh had his town laid out and began selling lots for as little as $5.00 down and the balance in monthly payments. In 1921, the proud new residents of this community incorporated as the Village of Westmont - named for being the highest elevated location west of Chicago along the CB&Q. The house built by William L. Gregg in 1871 has been renovated and transformed into the home of the Westmont Historical Society. The Gregg House Museum houses artifacts from Westmont's proud and colorful past so that future generations will be able to learn about and appreciate its local heritage.

Westmont is fortunate to be centrally located within greater Chicagoland providing convenient access to the downtown area as well as the suburbs. This feature allows Westmont to be highly accessible to both residents, visitors and business travelers. Westmont is located within five minutes of five major expressways: I-294, I-290, I-88, I-55, and I-355. North, south, east, west, and anywhere in between - no matter which way your travels take you, you'll be well on your way.

Commuters to Chicago board speedy and comfortable Metra trains at the station in downtown Westmont. Metra makes connections with Amtrak facilities in downtown Chicago as well as suburban Pace buses providing transportation to neighboring communities. The village's location is convenient for air travelers. Westmont is the virtual half-way point between O'Hare International and Midway Airports - each being less than 30 minutes away. Local limousine services provide transportation to both.
