The History of Oak Park and Famous People from Oak Park IL

The land that Oak Park sits on was originally inhabited by indigenous people from the Potawatomi, Sauk, and Fox tribes. Ridgeland Avenue actually marks the former shoreline of Lake Michigan, and was once a physical ridge.

{Random facts, people, I'm full of random facts! (Yes this is actually Laurie writing this; drop me a note if you notice this in the text so I know you saw it...)}

The first English settlers, The Kettlestrings, arrived in the 1830s. They called the area Oak Ridge, and it provided a convenient stopping place for farmers taking their harvest to the city. The era following the Chicago Fire of 1871 saw a population boom, as displaced residents moved west to build anew, and the village was incorporated as Oak Park in 1902.
