About St. Charles
St. Charles is a mid-size, growing city in northeastern Illinois, located about 40 miles from downtown Chicago. The community is part of a tri-city area that includes Batavia and Geneva. It's home to a thriving, diverse community as well as an active arts and culture scene and a growing economy.
The History of St. Charles
Originally, the area that's now known as St. Charles was a summer camp destination for the Potawatomi Native American tribe. The creeks and varied nature of the land were a huge benefit for the tribespeople as well as the settlers who came later.
A bridge and dam were built across the Fox River by 1836, making the land even more easily accessible. At this time, the town of St. Charles began to grow. Regular railroad service started coming to the city by 1871 when the Chicago, Saint Paul and Kansas City Railroad built a depot in St. Charles. This helped bring significant growth to the still-small city, prompting the arrival of many new residents and businesses.
St. Charles was a spot of great significance on the Underground Railroad, housing several safe stations within local homes.
The downtown St. Charles area was named among the top 10 destinations in the region for its wide array of shopping, dining and entertainment as well as its active arts scene and lively night life. Aside from the downtown district, St. Charles as a whole has plenty to offer locals. You can explore local history at the St. Charles Heritage Center as well as at historical sites like the Arcada Theatre and Hotel Baker. Or you can take advantage of the many shops and boutiques throughout St. Charles, which have earned the city recognition for their unique variety.
