Looking to buy a home in Oswego, IL? I am a long time resident and absolutely love this growing community with a small town feel. Let me tell you all the reasons why it’s a great place to live!
Oswego, IL, located 50 miles west of Chicago, is a town it’s residents are proud to call home. The community is continuously growing, yet it maintains a small town feel. Oswego is well situated at the southern end of the Fox River Valley in Kendall County, IL, just south of downtown Aurora.
The Village of Oswego also has a rich history. In 1833, the first permanent European settlers arrived in the Oswego area. The Village was platted in 1835 and incorporated in 1852. Oswego is a Mohawk Indian word meaning “mouth of the stream.”
The community strives to maintain it’s small town character and it remains a great place to raise a family. Many new residents cite our quality schools as the reason they moved to Oswego. Even though enrollment has increased over the past decade, Community Unit District 308 has an excellent reputation and has maintained its high standards.
There is no shortage of healthcare options in Oswego. The nearest ER and hospital is Rush-Copley Medical Center, a 183-bed hospital offering inpatient and outpatient care and progressive technology. Rush-Copley is a member of the Rush-System for Health. In addition, Edward Hospital has a Immediate Care center, Advocate Dreyer offers a clinic with a variety of specialties, and Provena Mercy Medical Center is within twenty minutes of Oswego.
The Oswegoland Park District offers residents an abundance of recreational and preschool programs. A new aquatic center, miles of bike trails, and hundreds of acres of parks provide Oswego area residents with clean and safe recreation.
Oswego is home to the Fox Bend Golf Course, rated as one of the top twenty public courses in the Chicagoland area. The Illinois Open was held at Fox Bend in 1997 and in 1999. For the ninth year in a row, the pro shop at Fox Bend has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the top 100 golf shops in America.
Located along the Fox River, our historic downtown includes shops, restaurants and the Oswego Public Library, which is a community center for learning, culture and recreation. The Oswego Chamber of Commerce is truly an active one, and supports local businesses like no other.
