Facts About Villa Park
Following the construction of a subdivision called Villa Park in 1908 and another called Ardmore in 1910 by the real estate firm Ballard & Pottinger, Villa Park was incorporated in 1914 by uniting the two subdivisions of 300 people. The first village president, William H. Calhoun, was elected on September 12, 1914. Although the merged town was originally named after the Ardmore subdivision, the community changed its name to Villa Park in 1917. Villa Park was one of a number of suburbs directly west of downtown Chicago that flourished as a result of the electric interurban line, the Chicago Aurora and Elgin Railroad. The railroad ran from the Chicago Loop, directly west to Wheaton, Illinois, where it then split into two lines, one traveling southwest to Aurora and the other northwest to Elgin. Two small commercial areas developed, one around the Villa Avenue station and the other around the Ardmore Avenue station. In 1957, the CA&E ceased to carry passengers because of a dramatic drop in ridership from the loss of a one-seat ride by the construction of the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) and the general increase in use of personal automobiles. The right-of-way was eventually cleaned up and developed into a hiking and bicycling trail known as the Illinois Prairie Path. The Ardmore Station is now home to the Chamber of Commerce, and the Villa Avenue Station houses the Villa Park Historical Society. Villa Park was home to the Ovaltine chocolate factory until it closed in 1988. It has since been converted into loft apartments.
Many of the residents are of Eastern European heritage, including Polish, Czech, and Russian. There is also a significant Hispanic heritage. A sizeable Muslim immigrant community began to gather in the area in the 1980s and 1990s and established the Islamic Foundation School in 1986. In September 2017, Villa Park was ranked #28 in Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live in America. In October 2017, the Village was named by Money Magazine as the 8th Best Place in America to Raise a Family Now. Today, Villa Park provides a good life for its 22,517 residents. They enjoy a ‘small town’ atmosphere, excellent schools, outstanding police and fire protection, ‘state of the art’ paramedic service, and exceptional recreational facilities. Transportation is good, and health services are outstanding. Service clubs are very active. Villa Park residents are comfortable with a wide variety of housing, and convenient shopping. An active society enabled Villa Park to have both Chicago, Aurora, and Elgin Railroad stations placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Both railroad stations are located on the Illinois Prairie Path, a National Historic Trail. In 1988, Villa Park received the coveted Governor’s Hometown Honorable Mention Award, for their three-year volunteer campaign to install ornamental memorial lighting on the Villa Park Prairie Path. Business people and our community leaders continue to address problem areas in the village while planning for the future of Villa Park.
