Arlington Heights, Illinois

A Brief History


The village of Arlington Heights—beginning with the diligence and fortitude of William Dunton—is replete with stories of bitter hardship and exalting triumph. Originally named Dunton after its founder, the village’s success was sealed by canny deal-making that brought a railroad through the middle of town. As the state of Illinois boomed, the village on the tracks flourished with agriculture, industry, transportation and an expanding population. From the influx of immigrants and industry to the resurrection of the Arlington Park Racetrack, read the compelling history of a small agricultural village’s transformation into a thriving commercial district and the unique way in which its small-town charm and industrious spirit coexist.
