History

The name Sarah’s Grove came from some of the township’s earliest settlers, three families that lived near a grove of woods in the northwest end all with a family member named Sarah. The earliest inhabitants of Schaumburg where Native Americans. Americans referred to as “Yankees” began to settle in the area and set up farms. In the 1830’s Johann Sunderlage a German-born man came to Schaumburg. Sunderlage was very instrumental in the development of early Schaumburg and returned home to Germany to bring his family and friends back with him to Schaumburg. By the 1850’s 48 percent of Schaumburg’s population was of German decent. In 1850 a meeting was held to rename the township from Sarah’s Grove where a wealthy landowner slammed his fist on the table and shouted in German the township was to be named Schaumberg after Schaumburg County in Germany where most of the German settlers were from. By 1870 Schaumburg was completely a German township and remained so until the Great Depression in 1930. German was the first language of most families in Schaumburg until the 1950’s.

At first Schaumburg was an isolated town full of farmland until the car became the main mode of transportation and the Northwest Tollway was built in 1956 through the farmlands.
