Richton Park, Illinois at a Glance

Where it’s located: 34 miles from Chicago, IL

Population: 13,292

County: Cook

Motto: Proud Past, Bright Future.

The Village sits astride the famous Sauk Trail which was used by the Sauk and Pottawatomie tribes for moving between settlements and sacred areas stretching all the way from the Mississippi around the Rock Island area all the way to what is now Ottowa, Canada.

After the arrival of the Illinois Central Railroad in 1852, developers established a depot and platted a small agricultural village where the rail line crossed the Sauk Trail. In 1926, the Illinois Central Railroad electrified its suburban lines, with Richton as the last stop. Local residents incorporated the village, re- naming it Richton Park.

When Chicago’s suburban sprawl finally pushed into the area in the late 1960s and 1970s, the village’s population boomed as it annexed new housing developments. There were 2,558 people living in the village in 1970. By 1980 the population had grown to nearly 9,403, and in 2000 the village had 12,533 residents.

Interest in a library was strong, and in 1972 a storefront was rented, located at 22365 Governors Highway. The storefront had been a coffee-house and volunteers did extensive cleaning and renovation in order to convert it into a library. Books were obtained through donations from area residents, the Suburban Library System, and the Illinois State Library. Fundraisers, including bake sales, book sales and paper drives were held. Volunteers constructed shelves for the books and furniture was donated to the library.
