About East Dundee
East Dundee is a community that continues to thrive and grow along the east side of the Fox River.
Incorporated in 1871, the village is home to a wealth of local restaurants, shops, and entertainment, including a popular amusement park. The Fox River Trail, a former railroad bed, follows the Fox River through town. Along the river, the village’s primary commercial area houses East Dundee’s historical district.
East Dundee’s original train depot was rebuilt and now serves as a tourist center, which hosts The Depot Market from May to October. Residents can purchase veggies, flowers, antiques, and collectables from approximately 40 vendors. They also enjoy Dundee Township Park District’s athletic fields, playgrounds, and trails.
Commuters have easy access to downtown Chicago via I-90, and a Metra station in nearby Elgin also provides transportation to and from the city.
