Warrenville is a suburban city located 29 miles west of Chicago and got its start as a lumber mill center but eventually developed into a vacation destination. Naperville and a nearby creek have often been associated with the development of Warrenville. The village was named for the Warren family who came from Naperville in 1833 to stake a claim on land near a creek at McDowell Woods. They built a home, a lumber mill, and a boarding house for employees working in the mill. In those days, a nearby dam acted as a spot for those wanting to go for a swim and fish. A few things that tied Naperville to Warrenville were the Second Baptist Church in Warrenville which was a branch of First Baptist Church in Naperville; the Chicago-Southwest Plank Road was finally constructed through Warrenville, connecting it to Chicago, Aurora, and Elgin Railway; and the Warrenville Academy, which served Baptist parishioners living in Warrenville, Naperville, and surrounding villages. Furthermore, once the interurban link was established, Warrenville became known as a quaint, peaceful retreat for those looking to get away from the noise and bustle of Chicago. Some of the most influential people to have lived in Warrenville were Mrs. Potter Palmer, who was a student of Warrenville Academy, Adam Emory Albright, famous figure-in-landscape painter, and John Maynard Woodworth, the first Surgeon General of the United States of America.
