Nestled along the Fox River, north of Chicago, lies the city of Elgin, Illinois. Considered one of the fastest growing cities within the state of Illinois, Elgin continues to expand its population each and every year.

Named after the Scottish song, “Elgin” the city was founded and settled in 1835 by two brothers from New York, Hezekiah and James T. Gifford. With such a vast and rich source of dairy in the area, Elgin emerged as an early producer of dairy products. In 1866, well-known dairy innovator Gail Borden developed and opened a condensed milk factory in the city of Elgin helping the city to establish its economic foundation.

Watch manufacturing became another economic stronghold, with the addition of the Elgin Watch Company. The successful manufacturing company placed Elgin on the map as one of the top, early watch making cities in the world. After the factory was closed in the 1960’s, Elgin continued to invent and inspire. In fact, the city is known for being one of the top cities for creation and the invention of new products.

Today, Elgin is home to a variety of businesses, schools and government which all add to the growth, development and preservation of Elgin’s rich history. Beautiful parks and striking Victorian architecture landscape the city providing great sightseeing opportunities. From natural preserves like Poplar Creek Preserve and the Spring Creek Valley Forest Preserve to the Elgin Public Museum, Elgin is a city that offers a wide variety of culture, as well as natural beauty.
