Chicagoland and Neighboring


Suggest

When the French explorers and traders came to the area in the 17th century, they saw an abundance of wild leeks growing in the forests and on the bank of a small river. They translated the local Native American name of those wild garlic as "chicagoua". The small river is now the Chicago River that traverses the City of Chicago.

The City of Chicago and its suburbs now constitute the Chicagoland metropolitan area.

History of Chicago
"Chicago has played a central role in American economic, cultural and political history. Since the 1850s Chicago has been one of the dominant metropolises in the Midwestern United States, and has been the largest city in the Midwest since the 1880 census. The area's recorded history begins with the arrival of French explorers, missionaries and fur traders in the late 17th century and their interaction with the local Pottawatomie Native Americans."
