Elk Grove Village is a village in Cook and DuPage counties in the U.S. state of Illinois. Located 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Chicago along the Golden Corridor, the Village of Elk Grove Village was incorporated on July 17, 1956. It is directly adjacent to O'Hare International Airport and is economically important to the Chicago metropolitan area due to its large industrial park, located on the eastern border of the village. The community is served by several Interstate highways including I-90, I-290/I-355/Route 53, and IL-390. Elk Grove is also expected to be served by the I-490 Western O'hare Bypass upon completion of the project. In 1982, Elk Grove was briefly in the national spotlight with one of the first reported deaths in the Chicago Tylenol murders. The case led to the death of 12-year-old Mary Kellen, who died after taking a cyanide-laced capsule that was laced with potassium cyanide. In 2018 the land was sold to be developed into the Elk Grove Technology Park. The village was formally incorporated in 1956 in Elk Grove Township, and was founded as a planned suburban community. As part of the original planning concept, the village was to be home to separated residential and industrial areas (the latter of which would later become the largest industrial park in the United States).Prior to its development as a residential community, it was home to many farmers and their families (mostly German immigrants) Many of the major streets in and around the village are named for these farmers.

In 1833, the Potawatomi signed the 1833 Treaty of Chicago with the United States Government. The U.S. Government purchased the land for about 15 cents per acre, and then resold it to white settlers for 1.25 dollars per acre.
