About Des Plaines
Des Plaines is a major suburb of Chicago, sharing its name with the Des Plaines River that flows just east of its downtown district. The city acts as a major distribution center for raw materials and finished products, with many different industries providing steady jobs. Theater and arts guilds and an extensive park district provide ample recreation, making this a desirable city on the outskirts of Chicago.
The History of Des Plaines
The Illinois farmland that would eventually become Des Plaines was settled largely by German immigrants seeking political and economic freedom in the 1840s and 50s. The Illinois and Wisconsin Land Co. purchased large amounts of land along a planned railroad line, constructing a steam-powered mill next to the river. The mill served to make railroad ties from the area's many trees. When Socrates Rate purchased the mill, it was converted into a grist mill. This shift caught the attention of farmers, who relocated to the area to take advantage of the opportunity.
The city took its name from the Chicago, St. Paul and Fond du lac Railroad train station placed in the area, which was dubbed Des Plaines. The village of Des Plaines was incorporated in 1869 with a population of 800. It became a city in 1925 and experienced a population boom that took it from 9,000 residents to over 50,000 just after World War II.
