A Local's Guide to Glendale Heights

A Local’s Guide to Glendale Heights

Glendale Heights may be a suburb of the Chicago area, but it has a vibrant spirit and dynamic community that is all its own. And that’s just one of the many reasons that we’re so proud to call the area our home at DuPage CDJR. Whether selling quality vehicles to fellow residents or experiencing the fall festivals with our families, we’re happy to give back to the local community in any way that we can. Let’s take a closer look at the past, present, and future of Glendale Heights, so you can get to know the town just as well as a local.


Glendale Heights wasn’t always the booming village that you see today. In fact, it was once known as simply Glendale during its incorporation in 1959. The name was chosen to reflect its close relationship with neighboring Glen Ellyn in the south and Bloomingdale in the north. But to avoid confusion with Glendale of southern Illinois, the city officially changed the name to “Glendale Heights” in 1960. The new moniker referenced the different topographies of the city, differing by up to 100 feet! The town grew rapidly, bringing in new residents and businesses, and now has a population of approximately 34,100 locals.
