Introduction

Romeoville began in the late 1800s as Romeo, the twin community to Juliet, now Joliet.

During the early part of the 20th century, as frequent commercial traffic thrived on the canal, Romeoville thrived as a popular resort destination. Isle a la Cache and Romeo Beach attracted numerous affluent Chicago residents. Since being incorporated on Jan. 21, 1895, Romeoville has experienced various periods of expansion and growth to become the largest community totally incorporated within Will County, Illinois.

Today, Romeoville is home to nearly 600 businesses and over 40,000 residents.
