Learn more about Northbrook, Illinois

Northbrook, Illinois is a popular village on the northern border of Cook County and is part of the area's North Shore. It is home to about 33,000 residents. It was originally home to the Potawatomi tribe until 1833. It was during this year that the land was ceded from the tribe and Joel Sterling Sherman and his family purchased 159 acres, which would later become the site of downtown Northbrook. By the 1870's, the Northbrook area was known as a farming community.

The village was incorporated in 1901 and at the time was known as Shermerville, in honor of Frederick Schermer who donated the land to be used for the first train station. The village name was changed by way of a contest in 1923 and a local man named Edward Landwehr came up with the winning suggestion, Northbrook, because the West Fork of the North Branch of the Chicago River runs through the area. At the time, Northbrook had about 500 residents and after World War II had a huge population surge.

Over the years, Northbrook has become a thriving place of industry and several large business call it home, such as Underwriters Laboratories, Crate & Barrel and the North American headquarters for Astellas.
