Palos Hills Illinois History

The Des Plaines River flows through Calumet County, a vast expanse of dense forest dotted with slubs, lakes, ponds and sllues that cover the landscape. The Sisters of St. Joseph built a hospital in the heart of Palos Hills, Illinois, south of Chicago, on the west side of Lake Michigan. Many believed it, but it became a reality on March 19, 1972, when the doors opened to patients at the hospital, the first of its kind in Illinois.

The natural wealth of the area was recognized and already in 1916 plans for the development of the Palos Hills to an independent city began to arise. In 1957, it became clear that North Palo was gradually expanding north, south, east and west of Lake Michigan and the Des Plaines River. A general boundary for their inclusion bore the names Calumet County and Kean County, Illinois, as well as the name of the county government, the County Board.

Nearby, two sites were excavated, one of which was on the upper steep slope overlooking the rest of the beach. One was at the foot of the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan and the Des Plaines River, and one was in a location on a bluff above the coast.

The ruins of Boyer are located around the corner from the town of Palos Hills on the west side of Lake Michigan. About half of the municipality is a forest area, the other half a state park.

Palos was originally called "Trenton" after its foundation in the 1830s, but in 1850 Christopher Columbus, whose ancestors sailed there, renamed the village "Palos de Fronters." The district later became known as Cook County School District 117, and the school was built in the later Palos Hills town. In 1884, the district's numbering system was changed to 117 North Palo School District. Later, the district became known as Cook County School District and later as North Chicago Public Schools.

Today, the site is owned by the Cook County Forest Preserve District and was partially excavated by members of the Summer Archeology Program in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Native American Village is the largest archaeological site of its kind in Illinois and is perched on a high rock overlooking the Chicago River and the Palos Hills National Recreation Area. While the Kiowa and Comanche Indian tribes shared territory in the southern plains, the American Indians in the northwestern and southeastern territories were limited to the Indian territory of what is now Oklahoma.

In the 1830s, there was said to have been no direct water link between the Sag Swamp area and the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. In short, the Sag Swamp area was one of several places in the Chicago area that the Indians were looking for near the tip of Lake Wisconsin and its tributaries, as well as the Illinois River.
