Evergreen Park Village Hall Phone Number: 708-422-1551
Evergreen Park is a village in Cook County Illinois with a population estimated at 19,800. The village was first settled in 1828 by a German farming family. As the decades progressed, more German families arrived to settle. In 1873, the first railroad, now the Grand Trunk Railroad, was established. In 1875, the community built its first school just west of 95th and Kedzie. The village gets its name from the Evergreen trees planted in the village park inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. The village is full of rich history. Little Company of Mary Hospital located at 2800 W. 95th St. in Evergreen Park, was the site of the world's first successful organ transplant. The Evergreen Plaza was developed into the first indoor shopping mall in the Chicago area by real estate developer Arthur Rubloff. Since then the village has grown and developed into what it is today, a prosperous village ambitious to make more history.
