History

When Silas, Harvey and Lyman Meacham claimed this area in 1833, they came seeking a place to settle and raise their families. The brothers, and those who followed them, formed an agricultural community that eventually thrived as a result of its strategic location on a major thoroughfare, the Chicago-Galena Highway, now Lake Street.

By 1837 a Bloomingdale Post Office was established, and the village became the third town to be platted in DuPage County. The village's first permanent building, a Baptist church, was built in 1849. Now the Bloomingdale Park District Museum is housed there. Retailing was already important in Bloomingdale by the time the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad came through the northern part of Bloomingdale Township in 1873. There were two boot and shoemakers, two carpenters, a wagon maker/blacksmith, and a cheese factory. The men's clothier and tailor shop started by Francis X. Neltnor still stands near Lake Street and Bloomingdale Road, in the area of restored shops kept as Old Town Bloomingdale.

The village of Roselle was platted along the railroad right-of-way in 1875; the first separation of the neighboring towns. In the early 1900s Bloomingdale and Roselle shared library books, and a fire engine, alternating their locations every six months. On June 16, 1923, the new village of Bloomingdale, split off from Roselle, was incorporated.

Bloomingdale remained a small farming community until the post World War II growth of the 1950s, when the population almost quadrupled from 339 residents in 1950 to 1262 in 1960.

With a population of 21,675 in 2000, Bloomingdale boasts a country-like environment carefully integrated with commercial, office and retail development. As an end result the community provides a wide variety of living, working, shopping and recreational opportunities built around a carefully preserved heritage.
