Melrose Park has a glorious -- and fun -- past! This Chicago suburb was once home to the beloved Kiddieland Amusement Park, which recently closed in 2010. Today, that land is home to Maywood Park Racetrack. Melrose Park is also the hometown of Stern Pinball, Inc -- the world's last manufacturer of coin-operated pinball machines!

Today, that land is home to Maywood Park Racetrack. Melrose Park is also the hometown of Stern Pinball, Inc -- the world's last manufacturer of coin-operated pinball machines!

When Melrose Park was first established, it was called Melrose, a small Chicago suburb in 1882. For some reason in 1893, the residents decided to add a "Park" to their name, and with that, the population began to grow. It hasn't been total smooth sailing in town; in 1920, there was an F4 tornado on Palm Sunday that killed 10 residents and destroyed the Sacred Heart Church and the attached convent. But since then, the small town has recovered, repaired itself, grown and continued to thrive as one of Chicago's most beloved suburbs. People that live here tend to commute into Chicago for work and play. But the community itself is solid and strong, and there are actually tons of things to do in town without having to leave.
