Oak Brook

 

Lovin', Livin'...Oak Brook

Oak Brook is a village in DuPage County, it is one of the wealthiest municipalities in the United States. Named for the polo club that its founder, Paul Butler, had organized in 1922, Oak Brook is one of Chicago's youngest suburbs, although it doesn't fit most people's definition of a suburb. It does not have a downtown, Main Street or high school. Still, the western suburb thrives on a sense of community.While other suburbs head to Main Street for community festivals, Oak Brook residents look to the mall. Oakbrook Center hosts such events as the Invitational Fine Art Exhibition each Labor day weekend and the Invitational Fine Craft Exhibition each July.

Oak Brook serves as home to the headquarters of several notable companies and organizations including McDonald's, Ace Hardware, Blistex, Federal Signal, CenterPoint Properties, Sanford L.P.,andLions Clubs International.               

The village's adjacent neighbors are Elmhurst to the north, Hillside to the northeast, Westchester to the east, Hinsdale and Westmont to the south, Downers Grove to the southwest and Lombard and Oakbrook Terrace to the northwest.
