Westmont Real Estate Listings and Information

Westmont

Welcome to Westmont, a warm and friendly village of 25,600. In the heart of Chicago's western suburbs, Westmont is truly "In the Middle of It All.” Westmont offers excellent schools; easy access to rail, highway and air transportation; a vibrant downtown; comfortable neighborhoods; worldclass restaurants; and a wide range of leisure activities.

Westmont owes its beginnings to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. After the fire, city leaders, not wanting a repeat of this tragedy, declared that all new buildings were to be constructed of stone or brick. A businessman named William L. Gregg, deciding to establish a brickmaking company, traveled west along the Chicago, Burlington, & Quincy railroad in search of a place to set up his business. Noting the natural clay in the land and the area’s high elevation, he chose the site now known as Westmont. The Excelsior Brick Making Company stayed in business for ten years, and a village grew around it. Westmont continues to accommodate those looking for a comfortable suburban lifestyle with big city accessibility and assorted cultural, educational and recreational offerings.
