Warrenville was founded in 1833 when Julius Warren and his family moved west from New York seeking a fresh start from a failing gristmill and distillery. The first major establishment, an inn and tavern, was built in 1838 by Julius Warren himself, as the family was skilled in timber and grain. The town quickly blossomed with two mills and a plank road connecting it with Naperville and Winfield, on which Julius operated a stagecoach line. In 1902, the Chicago Aurora and Elgin Railroad came through town, which lasted until the late 1950s. With a population of 4,000, Warrenville was finally incorporated as a city in 1967, following six unsuccessful attempts. The 1970s and 1980s brought westward expansion from the city of Chicago, causing the small farming community's population to nearly double to 7,800. Warrenville is located at 41°4935N 88°1122W (41.826280, -88.189465).According to the 2010 census,Warrenville has a total area of 5.618 square miles (14.55 km²), of which 5.46 square miles of it (or 97.19%) is land and 0.158 sq miles (0.41 km²) (or 2.81%) is water. It is a part of the Chicago metropolitan area and the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor. The largest superconducting particle accelerator in the world is located in Warrenville, next to Fermilab.

History

Warrenville was founded in 1833 when Julius Warren and his family moved west from New York seeking a fresh start. The town quickly blossomed with two mills and a plank road connecting it with Naperville and Winfield, on which Julius operated a stagecoach line. In 1902, the Chicago Aurora and Elgin Railroad came through town, which lasted until the late 1950s. With a population of 4,000, Warrenville was finally incorporated as a city in 1967, following six unsuccessful attempts.
