About Clarendon Hills
Located in suburban DuPage County, west of the City of Chicago, Clarendon Hills is a rapidly-growing village in northeastern Illinois.
The first settler in Clarendon Hills was Henry Middaugh, who arrived in 1854. Like many who arrived in the present-day suburbs, he grew tired of city life, and desired a lifestyle without the “hustle and bustle” of Chicago. Although it was initially known as West Hinsdale, the area was officially known as the Village of Clarendon Hills in 1873. Middaugh is widely regarded to be the founding father of Clarendon Hills, and his influence on the town can still be seen today. The town is often called by the nickname “Daisy Fields” and this is due to the amount of daisies that Mr. Middaugh had planted on his property.
The average sales price of a single-family home in Clarendon Hills in 2014 was $735,551.
Community Consolidated School District 181 serves the area. Comprised of four schools, it provides education for grades PK-8. Clarendon Hills Middle School, the lone middle school in the community, is one of five middle schools that feeds into nearby Hinsdale Central High School. Metra provides service to Chicago and Aurora at the Clarendon Hills Station, along 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.
Because Clarendon Hills is known for its plentiful daisies, the town hosts an annual “Daisy Dash” on Father’s Day, which consists of a 5k run to benefit local charities. The Clarendon Hills Park district operates eight parks, spanning nearly 50 acres, and offers year-round recreational activities for residents of all ages and interests. Amenities include: baseball and softball diamonds, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, walking and biking trails, as well as playground equipment and areas for picnicking.
