All about Barrington Hills

Barrington Hills is a village located about 40 miles (64 km) northwest of Chicago in the U.S. state of Illinois. It straddles approximately 29 square miles (75 km2) over four counties, Cook, Kane, Lake, and McHenry. The population was 4,209 at the 2010 census.[4] The Village of Barrington Hills was incorporated in 1957.

The suburban village is included in the greater Barrington area. Many very affluent residents live on large estates and commute to downtown Chicago. A minimum 5-acre (2.0 ha) zoning restriction has been in effect on new construction since 1963, but the existence of equestrian farms antedates the village by decades. Farming and horse raising are allowed.[5] Barrington Hills includes farms and estates such as Hill ‘N Dale Farms, owned by Richard L. Duchossois, former owner of the Arlington Park racetrack, and the Bank Note Farm. The identification of the area with horses carries over to the names Broncos and Colts for school teams.[5]

Barrington Hills Government

Barrington Hills was incorporated in 1957.[10] It was then composed of land only in the northwest corner of Cook County, and expanded over the next five years to its approximate configuration of today. In 1959, areas in McHenry and Lake counties joined the village, and in 1962 the village of Middlebury in Kane County was annexed. With the incorporation of Middlebury, the village government acquired its first building, a single-room school house converted into a police station.[5] The Village of Barrington Hills is a home rule municipality which functions under the council-manager form of government with a Village President and a six-member board of trustees, all of whom are elected at large to staggered four-year terms. The current village President is Martin J. McLaughlin. There are six current members of the Board of Trustees Colleen Konicek Hannigan, Bryan Croll, Michelle Maison, Brian D. Cecola, Robert Zuback and Paula Jacobsen. Officers of the village include a village treasurer, a village clerk, a building code enforcement officer and a village manager. The village manager is Anna Paul. The current Village Hall was constructed in 1974 with a substantial addition in 1993. The building hosts the Barrington Hills Police station, administrative offices and public meeting rooms. Barrington Area Council of Governments BACOG offices are also located on this site. A fire station was constructed in 1994 on the grounds.[11]

Barrington Hills Geography

Barrington Hills is located at 42°08′24″N 88°12′12″W (42.1399063, -88.2034182).[12]

 

According to the 2010 census, Barrington Hills has a total area of 28.039 square miles (72.62 km2), of which 27.43 square miles (71.04 km2) (or 97.83%) is land and 0.609 square miles (1.58 km2) (or 2.17%) is water.[13] The village is located within the Fox River watershed of the greater Illinois River waterway. There is about 1,700 feet (520 m) of shoreline along the east bank of the Fox River. Locally there are two perennial stream courses known to the west as Spring Creek and to the east as Flint Creek. Over the years, Flint Creek has been impounded such that along its course in the Cook County portion of the village are substantial lakes with such names as Hawley, Hawthorne, and Keene.

Into the 1990s, farmers still worked about 3,000 acres (1,200 ha) of land. Residential properties of over 1-acre (0.40 ha) covered 30 percent. There is no downtown center, but the village has a small shopping strip along Route 14. With a population of 4,209 in 2010, Barrington Hills has kept its rural flavor as industrial and commercial development has sprung up around its borders.[5]

The village is bordered on the west by East Dundee, Carpentersville, and Algonquin; on the north by Fox River Grove, and Lake Barrington; on the east by Barrington and Inverness; and to the south and southeast by South Barrington, and Hoffman Estates. Barrington Hills is one of only three municipalities in Illinois (along with Aurora and Centralia) with land located among four counties.
