Glen Ellyn, IL, The history of the Glen Ellyn Park District begins with an article published in The Glen Ellyan in 1913 stating that the village needed a park district.  This idea had its roots in the national movement to preserve open spaces through the creation of national parks, and in Illinois by the passage of a law in 1895 allowing municipalities to create park districts.

The suggestion that Glen Ellyn create a park district was not immediately accepted by the majority of citizens, but over time support increased.  On October 5, 1919 there was enough public support to pass a referendum to create the park district with Lake Ellyn Park as the first park.

Lake Ellyn was the perfect choice for a park because the land had been a public area, with a resort hotel, from the 1890's.

The next park to be added was Memorial Park, bought in 1923 when known as the "ball grounds".  In that year the Park District also added Stacy Park which had been given to Glen Ellyn in 1891.

Currently, the Glen Ellyn Park District has 31 parks that provide recreation, access to open spaces, and preservation of open lands and animal habitat.

Glen Ellyn, IL, The first landowner in Glen Ellyn was Deacon Winslow Churchill. He and his family moved to Glen Ellyn from New York in 1834. Other newcomers to the area built town necessities such as a tavern and school.

Moses Stacy, a soldier in the War of 1812, arrived here in 1835. His inn, Stacy's Tavern, built in 1846 and his second home, was a halfway stop between Chicago and the Fox River Valley and a probable stop for Galena, Illinois stagecoaches on their way to Rockford, Illinois. Stacy's Tavern, now a historical monument, stands at what is now the intersection of Geneva Road and Main Street.
