Since incorporating in 1956, Rosemont and its one and only mayor, Donald E. Stephens, have kept a constant eye to the future and based the Village’s successful growth on its nearby neighbor, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
Within the last 43 years Rosemont’s population has grown from 84 pioneering suburbanites to its present population of approximately 4,000. With its proximity to the city of Chicago, the downtown Loop area, and the airport, Rosemont has also grown to become a major business and commercial hub. Rosemont boasts 14 hotels and is home to the Rosemont Convention Center and the adjoining Rosemont Conference Center; the village hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors attending national trade shows, professional conferences, and hobby and craft shows each year.
Audiences flock to the Rosemont Theatre and the Allstate Arena for everything from Broadway musicals to professional sporting events. A wealth of restaurants and singular nightclubs satisfy residents’ and visitors’ tastes for fine and casual dining and after-hours fun.
Beautiful parks and fitness centers keep the health-conscious happily on the move. The Rosemont Skybridge Network is a fast, convenient way to get to and from the convention center, conference center and several of Rosemont’s hotels. With 75% of its buildings housing commercial or business enterprises, Rosemont corporations employ manufacturing, computer, financial, and communications professionals as well as support personnel.
The Village of Rosemont, widely recognized as an innovative, vital, and friendly community in which to live or work, takes pride in its accomplishments and looks forward to continued economic growth. The Rosemont Chamber of Commerce, with 266 members, promotes and assists local businesses, supports commercial development, and works to enhance the general business environment within the Village of Rosemont.
Just five minutes from the world’s busiest airport and only 20 minutes from downtown Chicago, Rosemont is ideally located near numerous highways and roadways that make it convenient to travel to the city, suburbs, and Wisconsin. The Tri-State Tollway (I-294), Northwest Tollway (I-90), and Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94) border Rosemont and provide easy access to neighboring suburbs, shopping malls, and amusement parks as well as farther away destinations. Board a CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) train at O’Hare Airport or at the River Road station in Rosemont and head south to downtown Chicago or suburban stops along the way.
