About La Grange
All roads lead to La Grange, just one of the reasons the suburb is a popular place to call home.
Named one of the Chicago area’s top transit suburbs, La Grange has two Metra train stations providing direct transportation to Chicago’s Union Station. Two major highways also run through the village and intersect with I-294 and I-55, putting the community within easy reach of airports and the city.
Of course, location is not all that La Grange has to offer. The community also has notable historic homes, top-rated schools, a charming downtown and a historic district designated by the National Register of Historic Places.
La Grange has a variety of single-family homes in a range of styles and prices. Many homes are architecturally significant and have been carefully restored to preserve their original charm, including Victorian, Queen Anne and Prairie School-style homes. The village has a few homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, including a “bootleg” house that Wright designed on the side while working for architect Louis Sullivan.
With dining, shopping, nightlife and a movie theater, La Grange has a vibrant downtown, earning the village a place on Chicago magazine’s list of best neighborhoods and suburbs.
A number of events are held each year, including the annual Pet Parade, craft show, Endless Summerfest and West End Art festival, along with seasonal celebrations. Residents also enjoy abundant recreation, with the community’s park district maintaining dozens of acres of parkland.
