The land where Countryside, Illinois sits was originally inhabited by the Potawatamie Indians and later by early American pioneers in the beginning of the 19th century. Settler Joseph Vial and his family were among the first people to settle in the Countryside area in 1833.
The area remained large expanses of rural farmland until the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, when the fire sent thousands of City dwellers into what is now the West Suburban Chicago Region. Land sold for only $2 an acre which made areas such as Countryside a welcome respite from the congestion and industry in Chicago.
Despite the settlement of these early Countryside inhabitants, the area largely remained a quiet farming community until the post World War II era when suburban areas such as Countryside began to experience explosive growth. The area’s first residential subdivision was LaGrange Terrace, built in 1947; it was later followed by the Don L. Dise and Edgewood Park subdivisions in the 1950s.
The City of Countryside was officially incorporated in 1960.
Around 1917 the Marx Brothers family (later a famous comedy team) bought a chicken farm near Joliet Road (Route 66) and LaGrange Road. Groucho Marx later claimed that the brothers spent too much time at Wrigley Field watching the Chicago Cubs to make the farm economically viable.
