Oak Park

In 1835, Joseph Kettlestrings, an English immigrant, purchased 172 acres of land west of Chicago for a farm and his family's home. Once Kettlestrings' children were born, the family moved to Chicago for the schools in 1843 and moved back to Oak Park in 1855 to build a more substantial home. When they moved back, the Kettlestrings family found that more farmers and settlers had made Oak Park their home. In 1872, Oak Park received its own railroad depot on the Chicago and Northwestern Railway. By 1877, the railroad was running 39 trains daily between Oak Park and Chicago  and in the subsequent year, more railroads and street car lines increased service, linking Oak Park to Chicago. In 1920, Oak park emerged as a leading Chicago suburb. 

The construction of almost all of the housing stock in Oak Park occurred during 1892 - 1950. Due to the alcohol prohibition, when Oak Park was incorporated, no alcohol was allowed to be sold within its village limits - This law was relaxed in 1973 when hotels and restaurants were allowed to serve alcohol with meals and was further loosened in 2002, when grocery stores received government permission to sell packaged liquor. Oak Park's population grew rapidly and by 1930, the neighborhood had a population of more than 60,000 residents, even larger than the current population. 

Frank Lloyd Wright and his wife settled in Oak Park in 1889. Wright built the Unity Temple (his own church) and a number of homes before he left in 1911 to move to Wisconsin. To this day, Oak Park still attracts architecture buffs and natives alike to view many of Wright's designed homes found throughout the neighborhood. The largest collection of Wright designed residential properties in the world is in Oak Park. Other attractions include Ernest Hemingway's childhood home, the Ernest Hemingway Museum, home of Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the Oak Park River Forest Historical Society. 

Today, Oak Park has a very active arts community - It is home to many theater, music, dance and fine arts professionals. Oak Park is home to several dance and theatre companies including Circle Theater, Momenta and the Oak Park Festival Theatre. Oak Park also hosts the Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest, which has been celebrated for 80 years.
