Your Guide to Frankfort

A slice of Germany in Chicagoland, Frankfort is an old-fashioned community committed to its history. With its 1890s-style downtown square, lush 21-mile trail, and famous festivals, Frankfort is truly a “Jewel of the South Suburbs.” Frankfort is 34 miles south of Chicago. Commuters can take nearby I-57 into downtown Chicago in about 45 minutes, depending on traffic. Those who want to ride the train can catch the Metra at Mokena Metra Station, less than five miles away. While the first settlers of Frankfort were of English and Scottish descent, coming from the New England Colonies, the township was established by German farmers from the Pennsylvania area. In 1850, Frank Chappel gave Frankfort township its name, inspired by the name of his home city in Frankfurt-Am-Main, Germany. Frankfort was founded in 1855 and incorporated in 1879. Even today, Frankfurt is one of Chicagoland’s fastest growing regions and the “Jewel of the South Suburbs.” Within this community is the 21-mile Old Plank Road Trail, a great spot for nature walks, morning runs, and afternoon bike rides. The trail is set within lush oak woods and golden prairie grass. The German Heritage Celebration on 140 Oak Street is held the first Saturday of May at the Founder’s Center. The celebration honors Frankfort’s German roots and sister city, Weidhausen. This fun all-ages event includes traditional German music and authentically costumed dancers. Click here for more
