MI-BOX Moving Guide to Hinsdale, Illinois
Moving to Hinsdale, Illinois
To figure out if moving to the Chicago suburbs is right for you, consider reading this guide covering all things Hinsdale. From the city’s historical background to its climate and economy, this guide will give insight into what the city has to offer. Ane when you decide to move to Hinsdale, be sure to utilize the local moving companies and mobile storage containers MI-BOX provides.
The rich history of Hinsdale dates back to 1862 when businessman, William Robbins, purchased 700 acres of land running alongside the Burlington & Quincy Railroad. This prairie was later developed into one of the most desirable suburbs for middle-class families, and thus Hinsdale came about. The land was incorporated in 1873, but it wasn’t until the 1890’s that the city saw dramatic civic changes. In 1890, waterworks were developed, a sewage system was engineered in 1891, road paving began in 1892, and electrical lines were added in 1896. Downtown Hinsdale experienced its most significant renovations in the early 1900s with the addition of brick and terra-cotta business buildings. During the 1870s, 43% of Hinsdale’s population came from the northeastern region of the United States. The remaining portion were immigrants who came from German, English, and northwestern European descent. Hundreds of homes were constructed during this time to accommodate the growing population.
Today, the city of Hinsdale still captures the visions that William Robbins and early developers had for the land. Since the 1870s, however, the population has greatly expanded and an increase in acreage was needed. The original 700 acres purchased by Robbins is now present-day south Hinsdale. Historical landmarks from the 19th century can still be found within the city limits for those who have an interest in seeing and learning more about the city’s historical beginnings.
