Living in Richton Park, IL

Richton Park was built on what was once a very busy trade area. European settlers arrived to take advantage of trading and farming opportunities. The area was originally crossed by the Sauk Trail, a long Native American trade route that ran from the Mississippi River to Ottowa, Canada. The Illinois Central Railroad crossed a section of the trail, creating a business hub where Richton Park was formed.

Richton Park was officially incorporated and given its name in 1926, but the village remained quite small until the late 1960s. Sprawl from Chicago's nearby suburbs pushed its way into Richton Park and the population steadily grew. As more residents moved in, diversity within the community increased.

The village has come a very long way from its beginnings as a small trading town. It has blossomed into a successful suburb in the Chicago area that is home to 13,705 residents. With recent developments such as access to nearby highways, public transportation and increased construction, Richton Park has become a desirable area to call home.
