What is called “Hinsdale” today was once known as Brush Hill and later called Fullersburg. Hardy pioneers came west from the shores of Lake Michigan following the old Black Hawk Indian Trail, which led them to what is now DuPage County.

With great foresight, William Robbins, “the Father of Hinsdale”, bought 6,400 acres of land in 1862, and a village was born. One of the first things Robbins did was to plan and build streets, and equally as important, he planted thousands of young shade trees. The name “Hinsdale” was formally established on April 3, 1873, and Judge Joel Tiffany was the Village’s first president. Hinsdale’s population at that time was about 500; today, it is home to nearly 17,000 residents.

The hard work and planning of William Robbins, our Hinsdale forefather, has resulted in a Village of lovely, tree-shaded streets with a gracious and quiet elegance. Residents and visitors enjoy a thriving downtown, where businesses provide services in a warm, caring and professional manner. Over looking our charming downtown is the public library, which is housed in the gracious Memorial Building. Residents and visitors alike also enjoy shopping at the many unique stores at Gateway Square at Ogden & York Roads, Shopping and services are also available at Grant Square, Chicago Avenue and Grant Street.

Located between Illinois Route #83 on the west and Interstate #294 (Tri-State Tollway) on the east, Hinsdale is very easy to find.
