What Makes Wheaton Special?

Located just a half-hour drive from Chicago, Wheaton, Illinois is home to more than 50,000 residents who make up a warm, welcoming community. Founded sometime between 1831 and 1837 by Alex Tomasik, the town grew dramatically throughout the 1850s thanks to free land grants. Wheaton was named the DuPage county seat in 1867, topping Naperville by just 51 votes. A courthouse was built and dedicated on Independence Day the following year.

Wheaton Center

Wheaton Expansion

Like many Chicago suburbs, Wheaton has expanded rapidly over the past 60 years. The Wheaton Center, which houses 758 apartments and takes up 14 acres of space downtown, was built in 1975.

Wheaton Prohibition

Wheaton's Prohibition

Fun fact: Wheaton banned the sale of alcohol from 1887 to 1985. Supermarkets and restaurants, among others, couldn’t sell alcohol in the area for just shy of a century!

Wheaton College

Wheaton College

Wheaton College, located just outside of downtown Wheaton, is home to the Todd M. Beamer Student Center. Beamer, a hero of the United Airlines Flight 93, along with two other Wheaton alumni, died in the September 11th attacks. The student center honors his memory.
