Moving to Markham
Located on the southern tip of Lake Michigan, Markham is a mid-size suburb of Chicago. Located just 18 miles south of Chicago, it provides convenient access to the big city, making it a popular home for commuters. A portion of the city is dedicated to preserved prairie lands, with the Sundrop, Paintbrush, Gensburg and Dropseed prairies comprising more than 2,500 acres of protected land.
The History of Markham
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, named after Charles Markham, president of the Illinois Central Railroad.
Both the Illinois Central Railroad and the Rock Island Railroad ran through Markham, making it 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.
Markham is a family-friendly community, with a higher-than-average percentage of homes with young children. Many families are attracted to the city for its affordability and convenient amenities, with everyday needs like grocery stores, schools, convenience stores and restaurants all within easy access of residential areas. There are also plenty of family-oriented activities to take advantage of in Markham.

Summer camps operated by the city's parks and recreation department offer field trips, art, crafts and various activities. Or your child can join the local performing arts organization, which hosts music, theater and dance classes after school.
There's no shortage of local events and programs for adults, either. You can participate in the Citizens Police Academy, a weekly program that provides locals with an up-close look at a day in the life of the city's police officers. Special events like the Mother's Day Luncheon and the Father's Day Cookout make Markham an enjoyable place to live.
