History

Before Westmont was Westmont, the land was home to the Potawatomi Indians. They established an intricate system of trails that laid the foundation for our modern roads, including Naperville Road and Route 34. Over time, the first permanent settlers arrived: Bailey Hobson and Francois DuPage. They ushered in a new generation of farmers that became the backbone of this agricultural haven. As Westmont’s reputation grew, the town spread out and infrastructure followed. A plank road was constructed to carry goods to Chicago, and eventually a large railroad system was constructed for even more rapid transportation. Westmont became known as a commuter community, and in 1921, it became officially incorporated.
