About Elgin

Elgin is a city in Cook and Kane counties in the northern part of the U.S. state of Illinois. Located roughly 35 mi northwest of Chicago, it lies along the Fox River. ZIP code(s): 60120 – 60125. The City in the Suburbs embodies the touchstones that make us celebrate the past, enjoy today, and be ahead of the curve for tomorrow. Elgin has a quality of life and accessibility that are unusual for a city, including cultural, entertainment, and recreation opportunities not available in other Chicago suburbs.  Founded in April 1835 by the Gifford brothers on their trek west and attracted to the Fox River, Elgin was named after the Scottish hymn “The Song of Elgin.” 

Most of Elgin lies within Kane County, Illinois, with a portion in Cook County.  As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 108,188, making it the eighth-largest city in Illinois and the 241st largest city in the United States.  As true today as in 1849 when the Galena & Chicago Union Railroad reached Elgin, the City in the Suburbs benefits greatly from our convenient access to Chicago. In close proximity to O’Hare International Airport with three interchanges on I-90, Elgin has exploded with significant growth.  Once known as the “butter capital of the world” for achieving fame for the butter and dairy goods sold, this industry became less important with the arrival of the Elgin Watch Company from the late 19th to the mid 20th century, when it was the largest producer of fine watches in the United States. Although the factory ceased production in the early 1960s and was torn town in 1965, the clocks at Chicago’s Union Station still bear the Elgin name. 

According to local historian E.C. “Mike” Alft, Elgin has a long tradition of education and invention. Elgin is home to the Elgin Academy, the oldest coeducational, non-sectarian college preparatory school west of the Allegheny Mountains. Elgin High School boasts five navy admirals, a Nobel Prize winner, a Pulitzer Prize winner, a Tony Award winner, two Academy Award–winning producers, Olympic athletes and a General Motors CEO among its alumni. Elgin resident John Murphy invented the motorized street sweeper in 1914 and later formed the Elgin Sweeper Corporation, which still manufactures the well-known Elgin street sweepers. Pioneering African-American chemist Lloyd Hall was an Elgin native, as was the legendary marketer and car stereo pioneer Earl “Madman” Muntz and Max Adler, founder of the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, America’s first planetarium. 

The city is known for its historic architecture and landmarks from the Victorian era, including some fine examples of homes in the Queen Anne style. Many of the most remarkable homes once belonged to National Watch Company executives. Many interesting Sears Catalog Homes arrived in Elgin as kits from 1908 to 1940 and original cobblestone homes built by the earliest settlers still stand. They can be seen in Elgin’s historic districts, two of which are recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.  The Elgin Public Museum at Lords Park is the oldest building in Illinois built expressly as a museum that is still serving that purpose.
