About Glen Ellyn, IL
Settlers came to present-day Glen Ellyn in the 1830s, and the first landowner in the area was Deacon Winslow Churchill. The Galena and Chicago Union Railroad was built through the area, and the project was finished in 1849. Then, the area around the railroad became the town's center.
Trains on this railroad initially did not stop in Glen Ellyn — and they didn't until a man named Lewey Q. Newton built a depot and water tank with his own money to turn the town into a rail stop. The depot was known as Newtown Station.
In 1889, residents completed a project to create Lake Glen Ellyn by building a dam on a stream close by. The community began advertising itself as Chicago's newest suburb and a great health resort destination. The village of Glen Ellyn was officially incorporated in May 1892. Today, the community is home to more than 28,000 people.
