History Top

 

The area that is now Forest Glen was originally inhabited by Pottawatomie Native Americans who migrated their because of its forests and natural resources. After the Fort Dearborn massacre, Native Americans were forced to leave the area and the first man to claim the area was Billy Caldwell. (Caldwell’s Indian name was Sauganash.)

 

The second owner was Captain William Hazelton who acquired the land in his Civil War settlement. He cultivated the land and built a house and barn on what is now Lawler and Foster Avenue. He helped to develop the area and became the chief supplier of cherries for the Chicago market.
