A Little About Streamwood Illinois

 

Streamwood is a northwest suburban village of Chicago located in Cook County Illinois. Streamwood is one of three villages that make up the “Tri-village” with the village of Bartlett and the village of Hanover Park.

History

Streamwood was a rural area full of dairy farms until the 1950’s. Streamwood soon became suburbia at the end of World War II and the Korean War. Subdivisions were being built like crazy all over the country with help from the GI Bill. Once the area had enough homes and residents the home builder applied for incorporation and Streamwood became official in 1957. In the early days the builders had control of Streamwood government and the town was in bad shape with lack of roads, high water and sewage rates and overcrowded schools. Soon the residents of Streamwood rallied to take back the government for the people and shortly after Streamwood development was back on track. Since the 80’s Streamwood has been growing commercially and residentially.
