Brickton: The Story Behind the Name

The first residents of what is now Chicago were the Potawatomi Indians. The name "Potawatomi" means "People of the Place of Fire." After their departure under the terms of the Chicago Treaty of 1833, Yankee settlers from New England began to arrive and lay out their farms near the Des Plaines River. Most prominent among these early settlers was Mancel Talcott. He built a log cabin for his family, a bridge over the river and served as the area's first postmaster.

In 1854, George Penny opened his brickworks company using the clay found by the Des Plaines River. When the Chicago, St. Paul & Fond du Lac Railroad (later the Chicago & North Western) began running shortly afterward, Penny arranged to have the trains stop in Chicago by building his own station. The community that grew up around the station was informally known as Pennyville. That is, until Penny himself suggested the name Brickton.

By 1873, the population of Brickton had reached 405. At that time the brick pits began to be worked out. When the residents chose to incorporate later that year, the village was renamed Park Ridge. Our hotel restaurant draws its name and inspiration from this early history and the gentle rolling landscapes of the area.
