About Palatine, IL
In the early nineteenth century, this was a rather swampy area, through which Salt Creek (then as now) passed. To the northwest was Deer Grove, so named for the numerous deer that it sheltered; “English Grove” lay due west, and Plum Grove about two miles to the south. Plum Grove was particularly important to the Potawatomi, who continued to visit area burial sites after they were removed to Iowa in the 1830s.
By the time Palatine was incorporated in 1866, it was already a community of some size, with a Methodist church. While the earliest settlers were Yankees, there was an influx of Germans beginning in the 1850s. By 1869 a substantial Lutheran church could be built. These Germans were mostly farmers, who joined the earlier settlers in bringing their produce to the Palatine depot for shipment to Chicago.
In the 1950’s, the whole area was opened up to rapid automobile travel, and residential building accelerated. The streets were generally laid out in irregular patterns, to avoid the excessively rectilinear appearance of many of the suburbs nearer Chicago. By 1970 virtually all the land had been taken up, and the only large open area was the Palatine Hills Golf Course, on the northwest edge of town. Beyond that lay the Deer Grove Forest Preserve, a substantial remnant of the forested area that had drawn Indians and Europeans to these parts in the first place.
