Beach Park


The Village of Beach Park dates back as far as 1908 when the railroad lines from Chicago to Milwaukee were first discussed. Prior to constructing their own lines in Milwaukee, passengers on the Chicago, Milwaukee Electric transferred to M-R-K cars at Kenosha or Racine with a stop named "Beach Depot" on the route map. In 1928 the stop changed names to "Beach Station". There was a small park located along the shores of Lake Michigan at the Beach Station and the conductor would call out "next stop, Beach Park" hence, Beach Park! In 1987 several people met to discuss the possibility of incorporating Beach Park. After two years of hard work and planning, this small group of people was able to see a referendum pass and Beach Park, Illinois become a reality. In 1989 we were on the map. The founders struck out on a unique platform.
