Chicago & Pacific Railroad

The coming of the railroad created Itasca; it transformed farming in the area, introduced industry to the village, and helped connect our town to Chicago. The eastern stretch of the line is about to be transformed into the $91 million Bloomingdale Trail connecting Chicago’s present with its past and future. These tracks tell our story as well. Come and explore Itasca’s continuing connections with the railroad.
