Hickory Hills is a city in Cook County Illinois and a suburb of Chicago, 15 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop. The community resides in Palos township and approximately half of the township is forest preserve. Originally, Hickory Hills was known as North Palos. Original settlers of Hickory Hills significantly consisted of Native Americans because of the wildlife resources. The initial population of Hickory Hills was 250 and the city has since grown into the 14,000 people who reside there today. The community enjoyed its rural and tight knit feeling but by 1960, the population had grown to 2,707 as part of the great suburban growth of the 1950s. By 1980, the population had reached 13,778, and in 2000 it was 13,926. Hickory Hills, named for its rolling hills and stands of hickory trees, continues today as a residential community with three major shopping districts and one of the more than 20 golf courses in the southwest suburban region.
