Around 2.6 million years ago, glaciers created ridges in the bedrock, which in turn scraped up the necessary materials, such as flint, sandstone, and granite needed for the earliest settlers in these parts to create stone tools. These unearthed artifacts prove that humans had been inhabiting the area now considered modern-day Bloomingdale five thousand years before the European settlers migrated to DuPage County. The first European settlers primarily came from Vermont and Upstate New York during the 1830s. One of these settlers was a man named Lyman Meacham, who headed to the Chicago area ahead of his family to find land to settle on. Meacham and his family ended up staking claim to 1,200 acres of land, which was mostly woodland. This proved very beneficial since he was able to use the timber for making fence posts and building homes. In 1834, more settlers started arriving in the area, with the most prominent listed in historical records being Stevens, Maynard, Bangs, Woodworth, and a Major Skinner. Originally, the growing community was called Meacham's Grove and was a part of Cook County but was eventually annexed by DuPage County in 1839. Then, in 1923, the village split, with the other half becoming Roselle.
