Hinsdale

This affluent suburb is located 20 miles west of Chicago and features a quaint downtown with numerous boutiques, restaurants, and bars. Filled with families and young professionals, Hinsdale is considered a desirable community for those who work in the city, which is just a 22-minute express Metra ride away. Filled with multi-million-dollar homes and dozens of historical properties, Hinsdale is both stately and sophisticated. Residents enjoy a family-oriented village known for its top-ranked schools.

Founded in the mid-1800s, Hinsdale developed quickly and became one of Chicago’s most desirable middle-class suburbs by the turn of the century. Development began to boom after 1900 when hundreds of new homes were built throughout the village. Efforts to build the city were led by Philip Clarke and architect R. Harold Zook, who selected Colonial Revival as the style of choice for all of Hinsdale’s civic and commercial buildings. Their choices have been well-preserved and still evident in the village’s infrastructure today.
 
Featuring rolling hills and a wooded topography throughout much of its expanse, Hinsdale also maintains a bustling downtown area at its center. Regarded as a National Register Historic District, this area of town is where you’ll find the train station and six historically designated buildings: The Orland P. Bassett House, the Robert A. and Mary Childs House, Immanuel Evangelical Church, the Francis Stuyvesant Peabody House, and the William Whitney House. There are other architecturally important homes throughout the community, each protected by the Hinsdale Historical Society’s Roger & Ruth Anderson Architecture Center, which advocates for the preservation of Hinsdale's historical architecture.
 
On the weekends, there are boundless community activities: Residents often congregate at The Katherine Legge Memorial Park and Lodge, located on 52 acres of woodland that can be rented for private and corporate events. Community members also make good use of the Hinsdale Community Swimming Pool and the 14.7-acre Veeck Park, a skate park that contains a baseball field, soccer/football fields, and a playground. 

There’s also outdoor recreation at Brook Park, Burns Field, Pierce Park, Robbins Park, and Stough Park—many of which offer ice skating, playground apparatus, and tennis courts.
 
Hinsdale features mostly single-family homes valued at over $1 million. Houses here are architecturally large, with five or more bedrooms and a generous parcel of land.
