History

Unlike its neighboring communities, Elk Grove Village developed relatively late because it lacks direct access to a railroad. Although it was settled by farmers and its land was used for timber and hunting, the village was not incorporated until 1956 when the first developer, Centex, began constructing homes. Like many of the surrounding suburbs, Elk Grove was mainly settled by German immigrant farmers. Some of these farmers included Biesterfield, Rohlwing, Landmeier, Cosman, Beisner, Wiese, and Busse. The Busse family owns and operates the last farm in Elk Grove, located between Higgins Road and Oakton Street west of Lively Boulevard. This land was once considered for a new Chicago Bears stadium, but the idea was withdrawn. The graves of Elk Grove's founders can be seen in Elk Grove Cemetery, located within the Arlington Heights Road interchange with I-90.

Illustration of the backyards of a surburban neighbourhood Suburbs are inhabited districts located either on the outer rim of a city or outside the official limits of a city (the term varies from country to country), or the outer elements of a conurbation. ...


Elk Grove is historic for being the very first planned suburban community; Centex developers deliberately planned locations for commercial, industrial, and residential development, complete with parks, schools, and shopping centers. The first Centex subdivision was located near what was then "downtown" Elk Grove, at the intersection of State (now Arlington Heights Road) and Higgins Road (IL-72) behind the Park 'n' Shop plaza and Elk Grove Bowl (now known as the Elk Grove Woods Plaza). The Elk Grove Public Library's first location was inside a home within this subdivision. Among the first tenants in the Park 'n' Shop plaza was Jarosch Bakery, which has been family owned since its opening and continues to serve residents to this day.


The village easily doubled in size during the 1960s. By the end of the decade, most of the land between O'Hare and I-290/IL-53 was developed. As the village expanded to the south and west, new roads, schools, and parks were added. Rupley Elementary was among the first to be constructed in Elk Grove and in Community Consolidated School District 59. The Grove Mall was built on the southwest corner of Arlington Heights and Biesterfield Roads to serve residents in that area. Initially, plans for Grove Mall included banks, retail stores, a post office, a theater, and other specialty stores; however, these plans were never realized. Land for "phase II" and "phase III" of Grove Mall were sold to Centex when Schaumburg announced the groundbreaking of the 200+ acre site for Woodfield Mall. Still, Grove Mall thrived for decades with Jewel Foods, Ace Hardware, Ben Franklin's, the Elk Grove Lounge, a pet store, a barber shop, clothing stores, and, later, Walgreens.


The 1960s also saw the opening of Elk Grove High School, part of District 214. The Robert E. Haskell Memorial Stadium is named after the first principal who ran the school until 1974 when he suddenly died of a heart attack. Since its opening, EGHS has seen continuous increases in enrollment, expansions of its facilities, and award-winning faculty. In 1996, EGHS received the Blue Ribbon for Excellence in Education. EGHS is also home to award-winning athletics and academic teams alike.


In the 1970s, the village developed land west of the expressway in Schaumburg Township. New apartment communities were also constructed in Elk Grove along Tonne Road and Ridge Avenue. These developments have since been sectioned, and some converted to condominium homes. The village saw continuous growth during the 1980s. Lively Junior High was shut down and remodeled to become the new Park District Recreation Center.


In the 1990s, after dedicating 29 years of service to the community as the Executive Director of the Elk Grove Park District, Jack A. Claes' last hurrah before retirement was the design and development of a 'state of the art' community recreation center. As appreciation for Mr. Claes' award-winning years of service, the Board of Commissioners of the Elk Grove Park District dedicated the Pavilion to Claes upon its completion in 1995. Located at 1000 Wellington Avenue, the Jack A. Claes Pavilion is a gem in the center of the Village. The Pavilion is centered around a twenty-eight-foot carousel that proudly glides in the front window. The carousel is the gateway to the multiple adventures within the Pavilion. Inside the 110,000 square foot facility is an indoor playground, fitness center, jungle-themed pool, banquet rooms, arts & craft center, climbing wall, racquetball and basketball courts and more. The Jack A. Claes Pavilion is a popular community center for children, families and singles and is a jewel in the Northwest suburbs. The old Lively Junior High was then used as a storage faciluty for a few years before being completely demolished in the early 2000s.

In recent years, the village has worked to redevelop and boost its image as an exceptional community. The "downtown" of Elk Grove was relocated to Biesterfield and Arlington Heights during the 1990s. The Charles J. Zetteck community center, police station, and fire station were completed at the beginning of the decade; the Elk Grove Village Public Library, the subject of many floods at its second location along the banks of Salt Creek near Morrison Boulevard and Brantwood, relocated next door to the municipal center; and finally, the outdated Grove Mall was condemned and redeveloped into the Elk Grove Town Center. The Town Center--and the renovated/expanded Classic Cinemas Elk Grove Theater (which originally opened in November of 1971 as a single-screen Jerry Lewis Cinema) --were reconstructed with red brick and connected the library, municipal complex, and shops with brick-paved walkways, fountains, statues, and, a few years later, a clock tower.


In the 2000s, Elk Grove received money that was used to beautify the village. This included the installation of "welcome" signs along major roads, painting the light poles and traffic lights along Biesterfield black, installing brand-new lamp posts (to replace the rotting wooden ones), installing new black-trimmed road signs, and installing brick-paved crosswalks at every major residential intersection.


Recently, ABMC expanded to nearly double its offices and parking capacity with a towering four-story garage and six-story office center. Elk Grove is also in the process of creating a second "downtown" at Meacham and Biesterfield/Wise. The old Super K-Mart center was divided to three new stores, and vacant land between the new Steak-n-Shake and Wal-Mart willl soon be developed into a shopping center. The old shopping center at Rohlwing and Devon was completely revamped and is now home to the prestigious Charlie's Charhouse, Belvediere Banquets, Country Inn & Suites, and several restaurants.


In the early 1980s, the owners of Elk Grove Theater sold part of its parking lot to become Burger King. In 2005, Burger King closed down, and the new theater owners, Classic Cinemas, reaquired the land. The six-screen cinema has since added two new stadium seating auditoria with new party rooms, making Elk Grove Theatre the center of quality family entertainment in the village.


50th Anniversary Celebration

In 2006, the village celebrated its 50th anniversary with a full year of special events and celebrations. Events included the Alexian Brothers International Tour of Elk Grove (an international bicycle race featuring some of the world's best riders), a weekly raffle with prizes ranging from $25 to $100, a giveaway of a $400,000 home (the last home to be built in the village, built by Centex Corporation), and a full concert featuring REO Speedwagon (held in the Robert Haskell Memorial Stadium at Elk Grove High School). The village plans to continue to hold the bicycle race annually. Centex (NYSE: CTX) is a Nevada corporation that began trading publicly in 1969. ... REO Speedwagon is an American rock band which grew in popularity in the Midwestern United States during the 1970s and peaked in the early 1980s. ... Elk Grove High School, or EGHS, is a public four-year high school located in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago, Illinois, in the United States. ...


Leading up to the anniversary, the village also underwent a major beautification project, with the installation of old-fashioned street lamps, brick-paved crosswalks, a 60-foot tall clock tower, a war veterans memorial, and renovation of nearly all of the village's parks and public facilities. The Rainbow Falls Water Park was the biggest renovation, with a complete demolition and rebuilding of the park, the addition of a new set of waterslides, and a USA Hockey Inline compliant inline hockey rink. The renovations to Rainbow Falls were paid for using taxpayer funds. USA Hockey Inline is one of two governing bodies for the sport of inline hockey in the USA. The Amateur Athletic Union is the second body. ...
