Norridge

2.6
Norridge is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States. The population was 14,572 at the 2010 census.The village and its neighbor to the east, Harwood Heights, together form an enclave within the city of Chicago (i.e. they are completely surrounded by the city). Norridge is sometimes referred to as the "Island Within a City". A history book of the same name was written by Norridge author Tom McGowen.Name originThe name "Norridge" was suggested by resident Mrs. Link. "Nor" comes from Norwood Park Township, and "Ridge" comes from the nearby suburb of Park Ridge.HistoryLocated in Norwood Park Township, the first names of what would become Norridge were "Goat Village", due to a local resident's goat farm, and "Swamp" due to a lack of streets and the area's swamp-like conditions. Norridge started out as an 80acre subdivision that ran from Ozanam Avenue in the west to Olcott Avenue in the east and from Irving Park Road in the south to Montrose Avenue in the north. In 1948, Norridge was about to be annexed by Chicago when a local improvement association moved to incorporate as a village, ending the city's effort to incorporate it. That year, Karl Kuchar was elected the first President of the village. The 1950s was a decade of growth and development, encouraged by the construction of a waterworks system, the paving of sidewalks, streets, and curbs, and the installation of storm and sanitary sewers. In 1954 Norridge annexed land north from Montrose to Lawrence. Also that year, the Norridge Youth Committee was established.
