Westmont

Located less than 20 miles from the Chicago Loop, Westmont is an expanding village in suburban DuPage County. Situated west of downtown Chicago, Westmont is an ideal location for commuters, as well as those residents who simply want to enjoy all Chicago has to offer.

The original settlers in the area were the Potawatomi Indians, who inhabited the land in and around Westmont until 1833. After 1833, settlement rapidly grew, with most of it due to the expansion of the Illinois-Michigan Canal. After the canal project stalled, the Westmont area became a major produce grower, which led to further infrastructure to support the burgeoning industry. Despite this rapid growth, Westmont was not officially incorporated until November 10, 1921. As the Chicagoland area began to grow in the mid-20th century, the population of Westmont increased by over 300%. Today, the town continues to grow, and is an increasingly popular destination for homeowners and their families.

The average sales price of a single-family home in Westmont in 2014 was $298,319.

The area is served by Westmont Community Unit School District 201, which is comprised of five schools. J.T. Manning, C.E. Miller, and South Elementary schools serve grades K-5, while Westmont Junior High School serves grades 6-8. Westmont Senior High School serves grades 9-12. Metra service to Aurora and downtown Chicago is available at the Westmont station on the Burlington Northern Line. National and international air travel is available at the nearby O’Hare International Airport, as well as Chicago’s Midway Airport.

Westmont has historically been known for its contributions to the Chicago Blues scene, as the father of Chicago Blues, Muddy Waters, lived and died in the community. Home to nearly 18 parks, the Westmont Park District operates facilities for residents of all ages and interests. Park features include: bocce ball courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, tennis courts, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, jogging paths, playgrounds and picnic areas. Westmont is home to a number of highly-regarded restaurants, including Uncle Bub’s BBQ, a local favorite for nearly 20 years.
