Hazel Crest

Personal Injury Attorneys Proudly Serving the Village of Hazel Crest

Located in Cook County, IL, the village of Hazel Crest was settled in 1870 within the South Harvey farming community. Ohio transplant and newspaper editor William McClintock moved to the area in 1890 purchasing 80 acres of land from Fred Puhrman, a local farmer in the area.  McClintock created a local milk train depot and along with it new avenues to transportation for the Chicagoland area. Doubling as the community’s first real estate office, the depot also served as a school, post office and town hall of sorts. In 1990, the community received its name of Hazel Crest, reflecting the volume of hazelnut bushes that populated the rise of land south of the town.  The village was incorporated in 1912.

As of 2010, the US Census reported that the village’s population consisted of 14,100 residents. One of the village’s most notable structures is the Martin J. Kauchak Municipal Center, which was named for the village president who served the community for 20 years.
