Oak Forest

The origins of present-day Oak Forest begins with a railroad whistle stop on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad near the present day intersection of 159th Street (US Route 6) and Cicero Avenue (Illinois Route 50) which primarily served area dairy farmers. This stop was located in a largely forested area of what was previously known as the Cooper's Grove Stand of Timber. By the 1880s this particular area of timber was being referred to as the "Oak Forest" due to its abundance of oak trees. A section of the former "Cooper's Grove Road" paralleling the railroad track from 66th Court to 167th Street in Tinley Park became known as "Oak Forest Avenue," because it was the road from the Village of Bremen/New Bremen (now Tinley Park) that lead to this "Oak Forest."

Oak Forest is now a bustling community with moderately priced homes and local to many area amenities.  One of the finest features of Oak Forest is the miles and miles of walking/biking trails through several forested areas, connecting its occupants to neighboring towns.
