About Elmhurst

The city of Elmhurst, Illinois is in the western suburbs of Chicago. Most of Elmhurst is located in DuPage County, with some areas belonging to Cook County. With a population of nearly 50,000 residents, Elmhurst is considered a well-to-do area of the greater metropolitan Chicago area. The city has been named one of the ten best towns in the United States for families by 'Family Circles’ lifestyle magazine just a couple years ago.

 

Originally home to members of the Potawatomi tribe of North American indigenous peoples, European immigrants began settling in the area in the 1830s. The city of Elmhurst was officially incorporated in 1882. For much of the early 20th century, it was one of the most important railway hubs in the mid-western United States. Elmhurst covers an area of slightly more than ten square miles.

Elmhurst College

Much of the cultural life in Elmhurst, IL is influenced by a very prestigious and exclusive liberal arts college. Founded in 1871, Elmhurst College has long been associated with civil rights and social justice issues in the United States. It is a comprehensive four-year private college with a tradition of service-oriented learning & ranks among the top 10 regional institutions of higher learning in the Midwest, according to “America’s Best Colleges,” by U.S. News & World Report. Around three thousand students attend Elmhurst College every year.

Downtown Elmhurst

Over 275 merchants do business in the downtown Elmhurst area, making it a popular destination for boutique shopping and dining. The centerpiece of Elmhurst is undoubtedly the beautifully preserved Classic Cinemas York Theatre. Designed in the early twenties by the famed theater architect Elmer Behrens, the theater has undergone many expansions and modernizing renovations over the nearly entire century that it has had its doors open to the public. Nonetheless, its classic facade has stayed true to the original design, and is a throwback to when Chicago was at the epicenter of what would later come to be known as the Jazz Age.

F.B. Henderson House

Another architectural marvel within the Elmhurst, IL city limits is a Prairie School style home designed by the American Master Architect known as Frank Lloyd Wright. Built in 1901 at 301 South Kenilworth Ave in Elmhurst, IL this house is one of the most striking examples of Lloyd Wright's visionary architectural sensibility. Among this home's many game changing design elements are its more than 80 art glass windows.
