  • Did you know that Shorewood was originally a cottage town and summer destination until the 1940’s when people started staying in Shorewood year round? Every summer, families would stay in cute cottages nestled along the DuPage River. The town would dam the river and people would be able to use rafts and go swimming. These same cottages can still be seen today along the river among the Oaks. The town was eventually incorporated on November 27, 1957.
  • Shorewood features numerous restaurants and shops as well as many running trails. With a population of approximately 16,500 this beautiful area has a small town feel but with the amenities of a larger town.
