The Village of Addison takes pride in its historic preservation, recreation and commerce.
History is top-of-mind in this charming community, where the Addison Historical Museum showcases local artifacts and welcomes visitors year-round. Century House, originally built as a teachers’ home in 1893, was purchased by the village to help preserve this important piece of local history. The restoration and furnishings for Century House were funded through community donations. Both buildings are maintained by the village and its historical commission.
Residents of Addison enjoy a wide variety of recreational opportunities thanks to numerous parks and trails for jogging and bicycling, including the 61-mile Illinois Prairie Path. The park district also has an outdoor family aquatic center, fitness club, indoor pool and golf facility. There is something for residents of all ages – from a preschool program to a vibrant senior center. The 18-hole tree-lined Oak Meadows Golf Course, built in the 1920s, is one of the most historically significant in the Chicago area.
Local attractions include the Addison Ice Arena, an indoor go-kart racing facility and Stardust Bowl – the largest bowling center in the state. The village also has restaurants, hotels and shopping centers.
Students attend schools in Addison Elementary School District 4 and DuPage High School District 88. The Technology Center of DuPage is located in the village’s industrial sector.
