The Village of Winfield, incorporated in 1921, is located in central DuPage County, which is ranked as one of the top growth areas in the Chicago metropolitan area. Residents within the community enjoy all the pleasantries of rural life, with Winfield’s many trees and relatively small size, but also enjoy the many services of urban life. Currently, the Village relies on Lake Michigan to provide water to the community, and receives its gas from Nicor and electric from CommonWealth Edison.
Throughout the past several years, the Village’s Police Department has been responsible for keeping the crime rate in Winfield the lowest in DuPage County. To aid travelers, the Village remains highly accessible through arterial roads such as Route 38, Route 43, Route 59 and Route 64, and lies close to I-88, I-355, I-90 and I-55. Plus, commuters are provided to and from Chicago’s Business District via the Metropolitan Rail “Metra’s” Union Pacific West Line.
For those requiring air transportation, Winfield is located approximately 21 miles from O’Hare International Airport, approximately 20 miles from Midway Airport and only 5 miles from the DuPage County Airport. Finally, Winfield is also home to Central DuPage Hospital, which employs approximately 2,100 people.
