A Taste of Wheaton, Illinois

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT WHEATON?

  1. Wheaton is an affluent city in Milton and Winfield Townships, and the county seat of DuPage County, Illinois, United States, approximately 25 miles west of Chicago and Lake Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 52,894, which was estimated to have increased to 53,469 by July 2012. In 2010, it was listed by Money magazine as one of the 25 highest earning towns in the United States.

  2. Wheaton has rapidly expanded since the 1950s, although population growth has slowed since the early 1990s, as the city has become increasingly landlocked. Downtown lost much business after the county courthouse facility moved two miles west in 1990, but in the decade since, the downtown has seen a renaissance of sorts, with the creation of several significant condominium and business developments. One of the most recognizable landmarks of the city is Wheaton Center, a 758-unit apartment complex on 14 acres in downtown Wheaton. The six building complex includes two twenty-story high-rise buildings built in 1975.

  3. In 1887, Wheaton prohibited the sale of alcoholic beverages, a ban which lasted until 1985 and applied to all supermarkets, convenience stores, restaurants and other establishments.
