Facts for Renters

  • The town's first settlers came to the area in 1833. The town was initially named Athens. The earliest townspeople began to develop the town by creating homes along the Illinois and Michigan Canal. The canals linked the Illinois River and Lake Michigan to the well-known Mississippi River.
  • Because of the town's location near so many waterways, many of the initial settlers were contract holders or laborers nearby. Many of the settlers came from other countries such as Ireland and Scandinavia to escape political persecution. 
  • During the canal digging, the townspeople came upon a considerable amount of limestone. This discovery caused the development of stone quarries. Several buildings in the town and the surrounding area were built using this limestone. Prominent buildings such as Northwestern University and the Holy Name Cathedral were built using this stone.
  • The canal and the quarries helped bring more people to the area and allowed Lemont to establish a name for itself. Today, the village is known for industries such as steel, chemicals and oil.
