History of Niles, IL
In the 1820s and 1830s, settlers arrived in an area occupied by Native Americans. On July 29, 1829, Article 4 of the Second Treaty of Prairie du Chien was signed between Chippewa, Potawatomie, and Ottawa chiefs and the U.S. government. It provided people with mixed-Native American ancestry with tracts of land, which later established part of the village’s border, long before moving companies started helping hard-working families move here.
The origin of the municipality’s name is unclear, although the Chicago Tribune suggested in 1929 it was a reference to a popular 1820s and 1830s newspaper. Other possibilities include influence by settlers from Niles, Michigan, or the name of a construction company present during its founding. Niles Township was formed in 1850 and formally incorporated as part of Illinois in 1899.
Other key historical facts include:
- In 1932, a half-size replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa was built in a recreational park to cover the water tank of a swimming pool.
- Niles established free ambulance service in 1946. It was the first community in the state to do so, and one of the first in the nation.
- In 1959, annexed unincorporated land was dedicated, where the Golf Mill Shopping Center, a fitness facility, senior center, library, and middle school were built.
