Captain Daniel Wright

who built a cabin in

1832 on land now

owned by Lutheran General

Hospital is believed to

be the first settler of the

area known at that time

as Smith’s Ridge. When

George Penny came to the

area in 1853 looking for

clay that could be used in

brick making, Smith’s Ridge

became Pennyville.

By the time the first train

pulled into the village in

1856, the village had been

renamed Brickton because

George Penny was too

modest to have the town

named after him. Penny,

along with his business

partner Robert Meacham

ran the successful brickyard

that supplied many of the

bricks used in the rebuilding

of Chicago after the Great

Fire of 1871. Brickton bricks

may have helped rebuild

Chicago, but the Chicago returned

the favor because many people

burned out in that fire relocated

in Brickton and became our first

commuters.

In 1873, Brickton became Park

Ridge when the 403 citizens voted

to change the name and adopt a

village form of government. The

name Park Ridge reflected not

only the location on one of the

highest points of land in the area,

Historical Society

The Park Ridge Historical Society

721 N. Prospect Ave. | 847-696-1973

www.pennyville.org

Founded in 1971, the mission

of the Park Ridge Historical

Society is to collect, preserve

and display artifacts of our colorful

history, to promote pride in the

accomplishments and heritage of

the people of Park Ridge, and to

celebrate the unique places and

events in Park Ridge history that

make our town a special place to

live. Opening in 1973, the museum

was first housed in a home at 140

Euclid Avenue built in 1905 by Fred

I. Gillick, whose first Real Estate

Office was located in a carriage

house at the rear. The museum

later moved to a Queen Anne

Victorian home at 41 South Prairie

Avenue. Display rooms were

devoted to depicting a way of life

that has long since left Park Ridge,

with other display cases changed

on a regular basis to appeal to

Park Ridge history buffs. The

Society moved in October, 2009

from the Prairie Avenue address

but also the park-like settings for

its homes. As the local clay supply

dwindled, the brickyard gradually

went out of business and toward

the end of the 19th century a

greenhouse industry developed

supplying fruits, vegetables,

poultry and flowers to Chicago.

Before the turn of the century, the

beauty of the area also attracted

many artists who located in

the area of Clinton and Grant

Place. The Kalo Arts and Crafts

and embarked on its History on

the Move project with plans to

relocate to the Hannah Solomon

Cottage on Prospect Avenue. The

Cottage, on the property of the

Park Ridge Youth Campus, has

the extraordinary distinction of

being one of only two Park Ridge

buildings on the National Register

of Historic Places. Renovation

of the structure will provide not

only a place for display of historic

artifacts in a historically significant

building, but also a contemporary

space with movable partitions to

accommodate special displays,

lectures, scout and student

visits, receptions and on-going

programs. In addition to the

History on the Move project, the

Society will be working with other

community groups to provide

special celebrations throughout

2010, the 100th anniversary of the

town’s incorporation as the City of

Park Ridge.

History of

Park Ridge

A parade through Park Ridge, moving south along Prospect Avenue. Photo courtesy of the Park Ridge Historical Society.

Community House, established

by Clara Barck Welles, helped train

hundreds of aspiring artisans.

Today, 20 of the best known

companies in the world of Arts &

Crafts silver trace their roots back

to the Kalo House. Among many

other artists of note who called

Park Ridge home were Alfonso

Iannelli, an Italian-American

sculptor, artist and designer who

helped design the Pickwick Theater

and was an instrumental force

in bringing about the modernist

design movement in

Chicago, Albert Krehbiel,

who was named the Illinois

State Historical Artist for

the murals that he painted

on the walls of the Illinois

Supreme Court Building,

Grant Wood, best known

for his painting “American

Gothic,” and Eugene

Romeo, who was also a

prominent Italian-American

sculptor.

Since its incorporation as

a city in 1910, Park Ridge

has continued to grow

and prosper. To find out

more about our town, call

the Park Ridge Chamber

of Commerce to book a

Historic Tour of Park Ridge.

Find out about some of

her most famous citizens

including Hillary Rodham

Clinton and visit some

of her most famous sites

such as Pickwick Theatre,

a nationally recognized

Art Deco movie palace. From the

asteroid strike 15,000 years ago

through pioneering days to Captain

Kangaroo’s Mr. Greenjeans, the

Blues Brothers and Harrison Ford,

learn how Park Ridge came to be

and how the town has evolved

through the years as you discover

fascinating people, places and

events have left their legacy on

this informative and entertaining

ride through history.

Elementary & Middle

Approximately 4,300 talented

students and 600 dedicated staff

members (teaching and support

staff) learn and work in eight

well-maintained Park Ridge-Niles

school facilities. Educational

excellence is reflected in an array

of quality programs: language

arts including reading, writing,

speaking and listening skills,

mathematics, hands-on science,

social studies, foreign languages,

art and physical education. In

addition, instrumental and vocal

music programs, computer labs,

learning centers, exceptional

middle school exploratory and

elective courses, plus programs

for gifted children and those with

special academic or other needs

enhance the curriculum. A districtwide

focus on civil behavior is

integrated into instruction in all

curricular areas. Standardized test

scores are far above state and

national averages.

Park Ridge-Niles residents value

education, as demonstrated by

high levels of parental involvement

in the schools through Parent

Teacher Organizations, district

level committees, activities

and fund-raisers. Cooperation

among the communities, park

districts, service groups and other

education institutions – and strong

financial support from taxpayers –

provide many extra educational

opportunities for students.

District 64 includes most of Park

Ridge and a portion of Niles.

Carpenter, Field and Franklin

Schools serve grade K-5 students

on the north side of the district.

Also on the north side are

Jefferson School and Emerson

Middle School. Jefferson houses

pre-school special education

classes, as well as extended day

kindergarten and after-school

care programs. Emerson Middle

School is comprised of 6th, 7th

and 8th grade students. To the

south are K-5 elementary schools

Roosevelt and Washington and

Lincoln Middle School. Maps that

define boundaries are available at

the schools, the district office or

on the Web site.

Children whose parents/guardians

are residents of District 64 may

enroll in their neighborhood

elementary school or middle

school, depending on where they

reside. The district offers a halfday

kindergarten program. District

64 also cooperates with families

by providing several parent-paid

options: a lunch supervision

program at the K-5 schools, a

hot lunch program at the middle

schools, before and after school

care, extended day kindergarten

program and a summer program.

Two three-week summer school

sessions are offered and include

basic skills, enrichment classes,

computer and arts and crafts

classes, among others.

District 64’s excellence is best

reflected in our students and

staff. Members of the Board

of Education, administration,

teachers, support staff and

students invite you to make an

appointment to see our schools

and attend a Board of Education

meeting.

(PRCF) has served local families

and individuals with all kinds of

needs since 1958 when we opened

our doors as the Park Ridge United

Fund. Over half a century later,

we continue to help maintain and

improve the health and wellbeing of

the Park Ridge community. Through

our annual fund-raising campaign,

you can conveniently donate nearly

20 local social service agencies. Their

programs and services make a real

difference in the quality of life for

Park Ridge residents, many of whom

are your friends and neighbors; and

help keep Park Ridge a wonderful

place to live and work. PRCF’s

dedicated board of directors, often

assisted by community members

at large, serve on committees that

carefully scrutinize all organizations

requesting funding for programs

and services, so you can be sure

your donation will be well used

right here in our community. You

understand that what happens to

people in your neighborhood, to

families in your child’s school, and

to others in our community does
