When surveyors for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad began laying track in 1862, wealthy businessman William Robbins purchased 700 acres along either side of the right-of-way at the center of what was to become the Village of Hinsdale.

Easily reached by road and rail, a shopping or dining trip to Hinsdale is a breeze. Three Metra rail-line stops make commuting to Chicago a breeze, Especially during peak hours when Metra offers 22-minute express service into Chicago's Loop. Hinsdale's enviable location in Chicago's western suburbs means O'Hare International Airport and Midway Airport are equidistant, granting easy access to air travel. Those wishing to travel by car will find many options, including I-294, I-55, and Route 83.
