Oak Park was settled beginning in the 1830s with rapid growth in the 19th century and early 20th century. It was incorporated in 1902, breaking off from Cicero and development was spurred by railroads and street cars connecting the village to jobs in Chicago. Visit the Oak Park website for more information about Oak Park Illinois. The Oak Park logo depicts a stylized tree built from human figures linked together to form a community. The image is meant to suggest the outreaching and supportive role of the Village government. The color green was chosen as the signature color because Oak Park is a community name for a place filled with trees.
Oak Park also contains many homes designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who spent the first 20 years of his 70 year career in Oak Park. The Walter Gale House, depicted on the left, was constructed for Walter H. Gale, a member of one of Oak Park’s founding families, a local hardware store operator. The Frank Lloyd Write Home and Studio is located at 951 Chicago Ave in Oak Park and is pictured below. Frank Lloyd Wright purchased the property and built the home in 1889 with a $5,000 loan from his employer at the age of 22. He raised six children in the home and the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and declared a National Historical Landmark four years later.
