Located 14 minutes west of the Loop and 27 minutes from Chicago, Northlake, Illinois, consisted primarily of farmland in the 1830s. In the 1940s, the area that is now modern-day Northlake experienced significant growth when Buick built its defense plant in neighboring Melrose Park. The Midland Development Company was hired to build housing for employees and began purchasing acreage around the plant. Single-family homes quickly sprang up, mostly ranch-style and Cape Cod-style homes. Since most of the plant employees were looking to save money, Midland Development Company offered “semi-finished” homes, with buyers being responsible for painting the house, installing electrical fixtures, heating equipment, and plumbing. In 1941, around 600 homes had been built in the area, and Midland decided it would be fun to run a contest for residents to come up with a name for the growing community. The winning contestant simply combined the names of two major streets that ran through the area - North Avenue and Lake Street - and the name “Northlake was formed.
