The town of Cicero is one of Chicago’s oldest and largest suburbs, sitting just to the west of Chicago. Cicero boasts of a rich history. Ogden Avenue, one of Cicero’s major thoroughfares was a former Indian trail, and some of the first homesteaders in Cicero settled on highest and driest part of Cicero (which has since become part of Oak Park). With the development of the Galena & Chicago Union Railroad in 1848, Cicero became the first western suburb to be connected to Chicago by rail. Cicero’s history reached a milestone in 1857 when its inhabitants officially formed the Township of Cicero, and in 1869 Cicero was incorporated as a town.
There are many fine Cicero restaurants, including Al’s Italian Restaurant, Cocula, Klas, and Freddy’s Pizzeria, that are frequented by people from all of the Chicagoland area. The Cicero town hall serves the town’s nearly 80,000 residents, with offices located at 4949 West Cermak Avenue, Cicero, Illinois.
