About Buffalo Grove, IL

Buffalo Grove was named when settlers saw herds of buffalo regularly resting and grazing in the area. Modern-day folks know the buffalo had the right idea: Buffalo Grove provides a great place to set down roots, with Chicago right nearby and the natural areas that drew the buffalo still dotting the town in the form of municipal parks and small lakes. Buffalo Grove's investment in the arts combines with this to make the town a great place to live or visit.
