Encompassing an area between Ogden Avenue, Kingery Highway, Richmond Avenue, and 55th Street, Clarendon Hills is a commuter village that sits along the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad. Before the railroad came along, the small village was used as a milk stop by the local farmers. Nevertheless, the president of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad loved the scenic terrain in the Clarendon Hills area. Walker decided that the location would make for a lovely commuter village, so he platted an area in DuPage County in 1873 and hired Frederick Law Olmsted to design the principles of the landscape. The village was named after a Boston suburb and incorporated in 1924.
