Settlers first arrived in Northfield in the 1850s to farm hay and grain, packing straw from the Skokie Swamps, mushrooms and horseradish. But the community changed dramatically in the early 1920s when the Skokie Valley Line of the North Shore Railway was built. The Village began to attract other North Shore families who liked its small size and remote country atmosphere. Today, more than 5,000 people call Northfield home.

Located only 17 miles from the City of Chicago via highway or commuter train, the Village of Northfield offers the beauty of a natural North Shore forest community with convenient access to downtown urban life. Housing styles range from quaint century old properties, to modern condominiums, to the most modern upscale mansions.
