A Very Brief History of Glen Ellyn

It took eight name changes for the name Glen Ellyn to take hold. Babcock’s Grove, DuPage Center, Stacy’s Corners, Newton’s Station, Danby, and Prospect Park were the first names that never took hold.

Glen Ellyn was adopted in 1889 when village president and local businessman lead a project to create to Lake Glen Ellyn by having a dam built in a nearby stream.

The first homeowner in Glen Ellyn was Deacon Winslow Churchill. He and his family relocated to Glen Ellyn from New York in 1834. Many newcomers would follow the Churchills to build shops, stores, banks, and schools.

Moses Stacy, a soldier in the War of 1812, arrived here in 1835. His inn, Stacy’s Tavern, built in 1846, Stacy’s Tavern at the corner of Geneva Road and Main Street.

Glen Ellyn was without a train depot until Lewey Q. Newtown built a stop with a water tank for steamers to re-fuel. The depot would come to be known as Newtown Station.

The first church was a Congregational church erected in 1862. Many Protestant churches would follow, but it took 60 years for completion of the first Catholic church.

In 1890, residents discovered mineral springs near the village. Glen Ellyn began advertising itself as Chicago’s newest suburb and health resort. The grand Lake Glen Ellyn Hotel opened in 1892, the same year most of the business district was destroyed by fire.

The village established an all-volunteer fire department in 1907. It was the last all-volunteer fire department in DuPage County.
