Faith and family unite South Holland as a gracious and loving community. The handsome buildings and lush grounds of the many churches in this “Village of Churches” extol the strong faith of the people. Family ties are equally as strong and the myriad of beautiful homes in South Holland declare that love dwells within. South Holland is a village created by families for families. Its homes are exclusively single-family structures that span a wide range of styles and sizes. There’s a home here for every budget. The village’s 31 well-equipped parks, for the most part, are neighborhood parks located throughout the community so families can use and enjoy them conveniently.
Community pride shows in South Holland’s schools, both public and private, where excellence is pursued in a positive environment. An in-town community college allows students to live at home while completing their freshman and sophomore years or while acquiring career skills.
South Holland enjoys a sound and stable economy, thanks to a sizeable and diversified business and industrial base. Shoppers find their needs in locally owned stores that line several major arteries. Two super highways frame South Holland on the south and east – Interstate 80-294 on the south and the Bishop Ford Freeway (I-94) on the east. The two provide convenient access to all of the Chicagoland area and to the nation. U.S. 6 and State 1 are major routes that crisscross the community.
Less than 30 miles from Chicago’s Loop, commuters can board speedy and comfortable Metra trains in nearby Harvey or Riverdale. Pace buses offer economical transportation to points within the village and to neighboring communities. O’Hare International Airport, the world’s busiest, is under an hour’s drive away. Chicago’s Midway Airport can be reached in less than 30 minutes. The third Chicago area airport being considered will be even closer. Corporate and private aircraft are based at Lansing Municipal Airport, only a few minutes away from the center of South Holland. The airport offers a variety of services, including charter flights and flight training.
