Palo Hills is a small, hometown community in Cook County with approximately 15,000 residents. The northwestern area sits on the heavily timbered Mount Forest Island. During the early historic and Upper Mississippian periods, Indians were the main inhabitants. Many of the Indians relocated after the 1832 Black Hawk War. Archeological digs have revealed numerous Indian settlements near Knoll Spring. From 1836 through 1848, German and Irish immigrants were attracted to the area with the construction of the Michigan and Illinois Canal. Much of the timber supply was transported via this canal. The development of the Dodge-Chrysler aircraft plant attracted many workers to the area during World War II. Throughout this period, there was much dispute surrounding annexation, and the area finally incorporated in 1958 to avoid annexation threats.
Planned growth throughout the 1960s led to a building boom of subdivisions. By 1990, the area was an established middle-class community Today, Palos Hills is thriving community that attracts many with its great schools, culture and opportunities for recreational fun.
