Relocation Guide Main Page - West Suburbs Area Guide
The Town Of Elmhurst, Illinois is your source for information on Elmhurst. If your moving to Elmhurst 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!Elmhurst is a place to know, a place to grow, a place to show and a place to go - just ask any of the 50,000 residents of this popular Chicago suburb, and they'll be more than happy to tell you why they've made Elmhurst their hometown. From safe, well-maintained, family-oriented neighborhoods, outstanding schools, and plenty of shopping to an array of recreational opportunities, leisure-time activities, and exciting events, Elmhurst has it all.

There's a real sense of community in Elmhurst. Everyone works together - residents, business owners, civic and social organizations, city government - in making Elmhurst a great place to live and work. It maintains its smalltown ambiance while offering all the conveniences and benefits of larger towns and suburbs. Merchants know their customers by name and neighbors get together at community events. The city and chamber of commerce work closely with businesses to encourage growth and expansion.

Members of the Potawatomi Indian tribe first settled along Salt Creek, just south of present-day Elmhurst. By the 1830's European immigrants were also staking their claims along Salt Creek. Gerry Bates, an Ohio native, formally established the community in 1842 when he claimed the area of treeless land that is now the center of Elmhurst. In 1845 the community was named Cottage Hill; it was changed to Elmhurst in 1869 for the many elm trees planted along the towns streets.

The town remained largely a farming community until the 1930's. The population had reached nearly 15,000 and Elmhurst's rural character was giving way to suburbia as modern-day settlers discovered the community. From 1950 to 1970 the population grew to over 50,000; with that population boom came a building boom as well - housing subdivisions, shopping centers, business and industry, schools and more.

Today, Elmhurst remains an appealing destination for residents, businesses, and visitors alike. Whether seeking a place to go for dining, shopping, recreation, and entertainment, its a place to show, with museums and other cultural diversions. Its also a place to grow, to raise a family, or build a business.

Situated 16 miles west of Chicago's downtown Loop and just west of the DuPage/Cook County line, Elmhurst is perfectly centered within the Chicagoland area. Interstates 290 & 294 provide quick and easy access to Chicago and surrounding suburbs, as well as O'Hare Int'l and Midway Airports. I-88 connects Elmhurst to the western suburbs, and 294 connects I-94 to keep Wisconsin within easy reach.

Metra's Union Pacific/West Line carries commuters and passengers to and from Chicago and to all points in between. Around-the-clock schedules depart from the Elmhurst station located conveniently at 128 W. First Street in the City Center. Pace busses run throughout Elmhurst's quiet, tree-lined streets, providing access to the Metra's station and other Elmhurst locations seven days a week.
