Situated 30 miles west of Chicago, just north of Naperville, Warrenville is a small community known for its scenic natural landscape and ample recreational opportunities. It is located within the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor, which is home to several Fortune 1000 companies' headquarters.
Warrenville was established in 1833 when Julius Warren of New York claimed land in the area. A few years later, Warren built an inn-tavern, which still exists today. The town was incorporated in 1967, and experienced significant growth in the 1970s and 1980s as a result of Chicago's westward expansion.
In 2012, the average sales price for a single-family home in Warrenville was $215,127 and the average condominium sold for $120,083 (source: Midwest Real Estate Data, LLC).
