Your Guide to Flossmoor

The roots of Flossmoor, Illinois run deep through American history.  In 1891, the Illinois Central Railroad purchased 160 acres of land west of the rail line and north of Flossmoor Road. In the late 1890’s the ICG decided to sell the property for development and sponsored a contest to select a name for the Village.  “Floss Moor”, a Scotch name meaning “dew on the heather” and gentle rolling countryside” was selected and approved by the U.S. Post Office.  Prompted by members of the newly-formed Flossmoor Country Club, the ICG built a Flossmoor train station shortly thereafter.

Flossmoor was first recognized as an affluent community in the 1920s, when it became known as a cultural and recreational mecca of elite country clubs and stately golf courses.  Vacationers built opulent summer estates around the area’s country clubs, and wealthy businessmen from Chicago lived in Flossmoor during the golf season.  Eventually, as the area was refined into the progressive community  it is today, vacationers decided to make Flossmoor their permanent residence. 

Flossmoor is located about 29 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop. Interstate 94 and 57 are nearby, which can take drivers downtown in about 45 minutes. Commuters can also take Metra trains into Chicago from the Flossmoor Metra Station. O’Hare International Airport is about 45 minutes from Flossmoor and Midway International Airport is about 35 minutes travel time.

The Homewood-Flossmoor Park District manages 32 parks over 36 acres. Some of the unique parks include: Patriots Park, Rover’s Run Dog Park, and Millennium Park Splash Pad. Some of the outdoor facilities include: Lions Club Pool, Dolphin Lake Pool, Coyote Run Golf Course & Driving Range, H-F Sports Complex, and the H-F Racquet & Fitness Club.
