Facts About Stone Park
Stone Park is located in Cook County, which was founded on January 15, 1831. It was created from parts of Putnam County by an act of the Illinois State Legislature. Cook County was the 54th county to be founded in the state of Illinois.
It was named in honor of Daniel Cook, the first Attorney General of Illinois and the second U.S. representative from the state. Local museums in Stone Park include the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, the Lombard Historical Society Museum, the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, the Niles Historical Museum and the Skokie Heritage Museum, among others. The Ernest Hemingway Birthplace, the Chicago Portage National Historic Site, Frank Lloyd Wright Home and the Unity Temple are all accessible from Stone park as well. The 160-acre William W. Powers State Recreation Area offers facilities for fishing, boating and picnicking. The Millennium Park has a theater, gardens, pavilions and an ice rink. Other popular parks in the area include Lincoln Park, Grant Park and Cantigny Park. As was common elsewhere, settlement began before the suburb was incorporated. Professional builders avoided the area, which had no building codes or municipal services. Land was cheap during the 1930s. Property taxes were a fraction of Chicago’s. “Reliefers” (people receiving welfare relief during the Great Depression ) dug wells and built their own homes, using secondhand materials or the sorts of garage kits sold by Sears and local lumber dealers. Lacking an industrial base, the municipality of Stone Park was poor and slow to provide services. With no storm sewers, the area was vulnerable to flood damage. During the floods of 1950, about one-third of all homes—then numbering 375—had to be evacuated. The pace of development then picked up, with more than half of the area’s housing stock constructed during the 1950s.
