For thousands of years, various Native American tribes lived in the state of Illinois before the arrival of European settlers. The Winnebago were the ones who controlled the hunting grounds in the area of Wood Dale, Illinois. On December 3, 1818, Illinois became the 21st state of America. This led to many tribes signing over land rights to the United States government, opening the way for settlers such as Hezekiah Dunklee and Mason Smith, who arrived at Addison Township in 1833. Eventually, they made their way down a path made by General Winfield Scott and his men during the Blackhawk War until they reached a creek. After a while, the two men reached the Meacham trading post. The Meacham family were primarily responsible for the establishment of Bloomingdale and were more than happy to assist the two travelers with information concerning living off the land. They were then directed to a large grove of trees along Salt Creek where they could stake their claim on both prairie land and timber. After a while, the village grew and was need of a railroad. A man named Frederick Lester who owned land in the area donated the land needed for the Chicago and Pacific Railroad to build a track and depot. Furthermore, Lester also donated funds toward its construction. The village would finally be incorporated in 1928.
