The ethnically diverse village of Glendale Heights is located about 36 minutes from Chicago via I-290 East and was originally called only Glendale since it was situated between Glen Ellyn and Bloomingdale. Though many historical records are lacking when it comes to pre-European contact, the fact is, Native Americans that included the Potawatomi, Miami, and Illinois had inhabited the area of modern-day Glendale Heights for centuries prior to the arrival of French explorers like Father Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet in 1674. The first prominent settlers considered founders of Glendale include Hiram Blanchard Patrick and his brother from New York, who both purchased thousands of acres in the Glendale and Bloomingdale. Another person who played a big part in putting Glendale Heights on the map was Milton Smith. Smith not only founded the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Wheaton but was an abolitionist, with his home acting as one of many “stations” for the Underground Railroad. In 1951, Glen Ellyn Countryside became the first subdivision in Glendale Heights, but most of the area remained predominantly rural until the late 1950s. The village was finally incorporated in 1959 under the name Glendale Heights.
