The Village with Many

The first landowners in what is now Glen Ellyn arrived in the area in 1834 from the east, namely New York. Another settler, Moses Stacy, a veteran from the War of 1812, arrived in 1835. He opened Stacy's Tavern, which still stands today as a historical monument. More settlement did not come until 1849, when the railroad opened a station there. However, the name Glen Ellyn did not stick until 1891. Prior to that, the village went through several name changes, including Babcock's Grove, DuPage Center, Stacy's Corners, Newton's Station, Danby, and Prospect Park.

The Best Shopping

The best shopping located outside of Chicago could very well be located in Glen Ellyn. The downtown area is filled with many boutique shops, retail stores, and specialty shops, including AliKat Boutique, Katy's Boutique, and the small town feel of the Glen Elyn pharmacy. Most of the shopping is located along Main Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Other streets to check out are Crescent Boulevard and Duane Street for some fabulous shopping fare. Just in the small village center alone you will find more than 40 shops to check out, not including the casual and fine dining located nearby.

Restaurants and Speci

Downtown Glen Ellyn is home to a wide variety of restaurants and eateries, where even dessert fans will find a new spot to love. Some chains like Subway and Starbucks are located downtown for casual fare, but if you crave more than just a quick bite, enjoy some of the smaller restaurants in town. Some that line the streets include Italian joints, Thai food restaurants, pubs, Tex-Mex grills, and specialty bakeries. This eclectic mix of eating establishments always offers locals a place to whet their whistle. For even more choices, travel outside the village center or even to downtown Chicago.
