Additional Information

The area known as Chicagoland consists of the city of Chicago and its surrounding area. The term was coined by Col. Robert McCormick, who was the editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune in the early twentieth century. It initially referred to the city and the areas around it where its grain, timber, and livestock grew. It now references the six northeast counties of Illinois, a piece of land that stretches from Indiana to Wisconsin.
