Located only 25 miles from downtown Chicago , Arlington Heights is one of the larger communities in Chicago 's northwest suburban corridor. A growing downtown skyline, expanding shopping areas, and new office parks attest to the Village's vibrancy.

The history of Arlington Heights goes back about a century and a half ago. Established in 1836, the town was originally known as Dunton, after William Dunton, who in 1850 deeded 16 acres for a right-of-way and depot for the Illinois and Wisconsin Railroad Co. The railroad, which would later become the Chicago and North Western Transportation Co., steamed through in 1854. By 1857, six daily trains were operating between Dunton and Chicago.

By the 1880s, Dunton was home to more than 1,000 people, and the area near the train station was a thriving commercial mecca. The name Dunton was changed first to West Wheeling and then, in 1887--when the village was incorporated--to Arlington Heights . Despite its early roots, Arlington Heights coming of age occurred during suburban America 's growth boom after World War II. Starting in the late 1960’s, Arlington Heights saw the biggest growth boom it had ever seen, a spurt that lasted more than a decade.

Today, Arlington Heights covers about 17 square miles and has a population of over 76,000, according to the 2000 census. Even though Arlington Heights has a large population, local residents and business people will say that the village retains many small-town charms. People remain in their homes for decades, stay loyal to local merchants and display a strong spirit of community participation.

Arlington Heights Historical Museum The Arlington Heights Historical Museum is a five-building complex, including a Coach House, Log Cabin, the 1882 home of F. W. Muller, and the 1908 Banta House. These buildings and their contents tell the story of Arlington Heights over the last 150 years. Tour guides introduce you to the life of early residents. Tours of the complex start at 2 and 3 pm, Saturday and Sunday. Tour fees: adults $4, children 3-14. $2. Group tours at other times are available by reservation. The Museum also offers special programs for schools and scouts.
