The village of Norwood Park was incorporated in 1874. Originally,
the community selected Norwood as its name which came from a novel titled, “Norwood: Or, Village Life in New England”
written by Henry Ward Beecher. However, at that time, there was another village with the same name so the citizens added the
surname “Park” in honor of their forest-country scenery.
The area’s first settlers were English
farmers who came to Norwood around 1830. Over time, German, Poles, and Scandinavian immigrants came to the area to work for
the railroad companies and help build the community. By 1893, Norwood Park was annexed to Chicago.

area bordered by trees and foliage home to many older historical properties.
