Wilmette History

Wilmette suburb

The Wilmette suburb is located 14 miles north of Chicago's downtown, and has been named by Business Week as both the best place to live in Illinois and the seventh-best place in the nation to raise children. The town’s origins go back as far as the late 18th century, having been named for French-Canadian fur trader Antoine Ouilmette, an instrumental figure in the 1829 treaty process that opened northern Illinois for American settlement. The Wilmette suburb was first incorporated in 1872, and began to grow rapidly in 1880, encouraged by increased railroad service. An unincorporated “No Man’s Land” that had been devastated by fire in 1932 was annexed in 1942, and became the foundation for the commercially successful Plaza del Lago shopping center in 1968. Today, the Wilmette suburb is a vibrant community comprised of many strong neighborhoods, races, religions and levels of income. It is also home to the Baha’i Temple, the oldest surviving Baha’i House of Worship in the world, and the only one of its kind in the United States.
