Living in Skokie, IL

The founding father of Skokie was Henry Harms, a Prussian immigrant who set up the merchant and postmaster in the city during its early beginnings. At the turn of the 20th century, Skokie became known for its many vegetable farms and greenhouses. After the Chicago and North Western Railroad allowed passengers to travel to and from Chicago easily, many Illinois residents began making the move here due to the village's stability and economic growth. Today, Skokie is home to more than 65,000 residents, according to 2010 data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Skokie is known for being a village of young families, as more than one-fifth of the population is 18 or younger.
