A Brief History of New Lenox​

New Lenox’s town came from humble beginnings as a small farming settlement alongside Hickory Creek and the Des Plaines River. Early European Colonists and the Potawatomi Tribe shared the land and the waterways for decades. Until, in the 1830s, the tribe was removed from the ground. 

The small development population began to rise after the Chicago and Rock Island Railway finished their construction. It was a massive development for the settlers as the train brought the town industry and people. The village adopted the name from Lenox, New York, the hometown of their township supervisor. As the railway grew in popularity, New Lenox began to gain a strong economy upon their agricultural production. 

Decades later, Interstate 80 was completed nearby to New Lenox, which resulted in another population boom. This addition transformed New Lenox from a rural village to the suburb that it is today. From that point forward, New Lenox only continues to grow in size and industry.
