Welcome home to Burr Ridge. The village of Burr Ridge was first settled in 1834 when Jospeh Vial erected a log cabin near Plainfield and Wolf roads. Vial also ran a hotel on the stagecoach line and Flagg Creek an offshoot of the Des Plaines river runs through town. The area in Dupage & Cook Counties consists of  gently rolling hills formed by glaciers at the end of the last ice age. In 1917 the International Harvester Co purchased 414 acres where it tested the first all purpose tractor. Burr Ridge was also home to the first Democratic National Convention in 1835 as well as host to a prison farm named Bridewell. In the mid to late 1800's it was settled by a small group of German farmers. In the 1940's Denver Busby bought 190 acres for a Diary Farm he named Burr Ridge.
