Welcome to La Grange
An oasis in the heart of Chicago’s suburbs.
Nestled in the outskirts of Chicago lies one of the state’s most prestigious small-town communities. Offering residents a plethora of unique boutiques, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and a wide variety of stunning homes, La Grange has been regularly voted as one of the top towns to live in the area.
The area was originally settled in the 1830s by Chicago residents looking to escape the city’s population surge.

Nowadays, this community is an absolute suburban oasis, offering homeowners all the serenity of small-town life without giving up any of the conveniences of the big city.
