About Skokie, IL - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!
The village of Skokie was formed in 1888 as Niles Centre. The village was renamed “Skokie”, which is a Potawatomi term meaning the “great marsh” as its name was creating a confusion with the nearby town of Niles.
Originally, Skokie was a German farming community. It later became home to the Jewish community. Skokie also has the “Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center”, which opened in 2009, in Northwest Skokie. In the late 1950s, close to 60% of the local population was Jewish, which is the highest percentage for any suburb around Chicago.
When families moved from Chicago back in the 1940s and 50s, Skokie’s housing sector started developing. The first African-American family moved to Skokie in 1961 and was helped by open-housing activists.
This is a small suburban area, but offers plenty of sights. If you are into small-town attractions, history, beaches and nature, Skokie has it all, the most famous being Skokie lagoons, which offer kayaking, bird watching, hiking and the lagoons. The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center has been built there as many Jews who settled in Skokie were survivors of the Holocaust.
This beautiful suburb also is home to the Indian Boundary Park, Montrose beach, Kathy Osterman beach, lane beach and Chippewa woods along with many delightful places to eat. The most popular ones being Libertad, Sanders family restaurant and pancake house and the Broiler shrimp and crawfish.
A movie was also made on the NSPA trial, in 1991. This movie combines real and fictional characters to detail the actual happenings in Skokie.
Skokie generally has a cold climate, with 191 or so days of sunshine. The amount of rainfall that Skokie receives is relatively higher than the average city.
