When the first settlers arrived in the area of modern-day Lisle, Illinois, they were met with rolling hills and lush woodlands. The soil was fertile and its creek was crystal clear. These things had been attracting settlers to the area since the prehistoric era. Up until the middle of the 17th century, French explorers had brief interactions with the Illiniwek Native Americans. Nevertheless, the Potawatomi migrated to the area around 1641 and were directly responsible for pushing out the remaining Illiniwek. A little less than two hundred years later, migrants from various European countries, including the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, Great Britain, and even Russia began to settle in Chicago and the lands surrounding it. According to historical records, in the 1840s, German-speaking farmers from France were some of the first to permanently settle in Lisle. As fate would have it, Lisle gradually developed in a locality very near to vital transportation routes, which fostered its transformation from way station to prominent Chicago suburb, as well as a high-tech industrial port of call. The village was finally incorporated in 1956 and has become the third top meeting destination in the state of Illinois, much to the thanks of Interstates 88 and 355 and its numerous high-ranking hotels.
