Moving to Markham
Located on the southern tip of Lake Michigan, Markham, Illinois, has about 12,600 residents. While Markham is 18 miles south of Chicago, the city is still considered part of the greater Chicago metropolitan area.
Markham was originally settled by German and Irish immigrants in the mid-1800s, although Markham did not become recognized as a distinct town until 1925. In that year, it incorporated under the name of Markham, after Charles Markham, president of the Illinois Central Railroad.
Both the Illinois Central Railroad and the Rock Island Railroad ran through Markham, making this town an attractive home to farmers who shipped their produce on the railroads. The city turned to a more industrial base in the early 20th century. After World War II, it grew rapidly, likely due to its reputation as an affordable bedroom community near Chicago. Markham was officially recognized as a city in 1967.
If you're moving to Markham from Chicago or another major metropolitan area, you'll be greeted with reasonable housing costs and lower cost of living. The median home price is $106,500, and the median household income is about $39,500.
While the cost of living is a major attraction, the city has struggled with somewhat higher than average unemployment rates. Currently, the unemployment rate hovers near 7 percent, compared to about 5 percent nationally, and 4 percent for the Chicago suburbs of Schaumburg and Naperville.
The industries that employ the largest number of Markham residents include transportation, retail, health care, construction, and manufacturing.
Overall, Markham is a family-oriented community, with more than 75 percent of households occupied by families with children, well above the state average.
