Welcome to Western Springs!

western-springs-water-towerFounded in 1886, the Village of Western Springs was named after the underground springs that were located on the south side of town.

Recognized as one of the Safest Cities in Illinois and one of the Best Cities for Young Families and rated 10/10 on

We welcome you as a new neighbor and hope you enjoy living in our community!
