Northbrook is an upscale village in North Chicago. Initially, the village was named Shermerville in honor of Frederick Schermer. Frederick donated land for the first railway station in the village. From 1901 to 1923 the name Shermerville identified the community. In the onset of 1923, the name was changed to Northbrook. The village has a rather interesting history and several attractive features that make tourists flock the area.
Historically, the first inhabitants were members of the Potawatomi tribe. They occupied the area up until 1833 when they moved to Iowa. Then a farmer by the name of Joel Sterling Sherman bought several acres of land & started developing. Time went by and more people settled in the area to what is now Northbrook today. Currently, Northbrook is home to nearly 35,000 residents covering 13 square miles.
