Arlington Heights History
The Arlington Heights suburb is notably large, with territory spanning the Wheeling, Elk Grove, and Palatine townships; and holding the current distinction of most populated “village” in the United States. It is located about 25 miles northwest of Chicago, and commuters are easily connected to the city by both expressways and rail lines. Between the mid-1830s and early 1850s the region was largely composed of farmland, cultivated by Germany immigrants, which supplied the city with a variety of produce and flowers. The area would change dramatically in 1853 with the establishment of a new Illinois & Wisconsin Railroad stop, which led to the establishment of a growing town, named Dunton. This was incorporated and renamed as Arlington Heights in 1887, and has grown since then from a rural outpost into a thriving cultural center. Notable landmarks of the Arlington Heights suburb include Arlington Race Track, a Breeders’ Cup qualifying horse track, the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, and the Metropolis Center for the Performing Arts, a large regional theater.
