The area now known as Westchester was occupied by German farmers dating back to the mid 19th century. Samuel Insull purchased the land in 1924 with plans to recreate an English style town. As a result, the town’s name and the majority of its street names are of English origin.
The Great Depression slowed construction in the ensuing decade, although the population continued to grow, largely aided by the presence of the western terminal of Chicago’s rapid transit line. The extension of the line was removed in 1951. However, the Eisenhower Interstate System‘s creation in 1956 led to the construction of nearby expressways I-290 and I-294, providing residents with convenient travel.
