Chicago’s Top Movers in River Forest, Illinois
For more than three decades, Midway Moving & Storage has served residential, business, government, and not-for-profit clients throughout the Chicago area. We’re also proud to serve the suburban village of River Forest, IL. Located 10 miles from the Loop, the village is home to Concordia University Chicago and Dominican University and is served by a railroad station on the Union Pacific/West Line.
Native Americans inhabited this area until the 1830s. Settlers began to inhabit it thereafter, and growth was aided by relocations after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. River Forest was incorporated in 1880. Soon after, licenses for two saloons were approved to raise funds for public works projects. The community grew rapidly in the early 20th century, and its population reached a peak of 13,402 by 1970; by 2016, it was estimated to be around 11,088.
Where to Live
River Forest has two elementary schools and a middle school, and it shares a high school with the community of Oak Park. Its homes feature elegant architecture designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and others. The ethnically diverse village is home to many artists, white-collar workers, and telecommuters.
There are homes for sale in the village, many of which are clustered near Chicago Avenue. Others are close to the two large universities. Some of the most expensive real estate is near Dominican University. The Village Center/Concordia-U-Chicago neighborhood is preferred by executives and college students who enjoy the arts, theater, fine dining, and other cultural amenities.
