Below is some general information about Northbrook:

Northbrook is a village on Chicago’s North Shore, located at the northern edge of Cook County, Illinois, United States. The population was 33,170 at the 2010 census. When incorporated in 1901, the village was known as Shermerville in honor of Frederick Schermer, who donated the land for its first train station. The village changed its name to Northbrook in 1923 as an effort to improve its public image. The name was chosen because the West Fork of the North Branch of the Chicago River runs through the Village. Glenbrook North High School, founded in 1953 as Glenbrook High School, is located in Northbrook. The village is also home to Northbrook Court shopping mall, the Ed Rudolph Velodrome, and the Northbrook Public Library.

Members of the Potawatomi tribe were the earliest recorded residents of the Northbrook area. In 1833 the Potawatomi ceded their Illinois lands and moved to a place near Council Bluffs, Iowa. Afterwards Joel Sterling Sherman and his family bought 159 acres of land in the northwest quarter of Section 10 for $1.25 per acre; as of 2010 Northbrook’s downtown is located on this site. A man named Frederick Schermer donated the land used for the first railroad station, named Schermer Station and later Shermer Station; the community was named Shermerville after him. By 1921 residents believed that the name “Shermerville” had a negative reputation. A renaming contest was held, and a man named Edward Landwehr submitted the name “Northbrook”. In 1923 “Northbrook”, the winner, was adopted; at the time Northbrook had 500 residents. After the end of World War II, Northbrook’s population began to rapidly increase.

The Village of Northbrook adopted a council manager form of government after a 1953 referendum. The village’s board of trustees includes six trustees and the president; all of them must be residents of Northbrook. The board establishes policies and hires a village manager to operate the day-to-day business. As of 2010 Sandra E. Frum is the president, and the trustees are A.C. Buehler III, Kathryn L. Ciesla, Todd A. Heller, James A. Karagianis, Michael W. Scolaro, and Kati B. Spaniak. As of the same year Richard M. Nahrstadt is the village manager and Debra J. Ford is the village clerk. The United States Postal Service operates the Northbrook Post Office, the Northbrook Downtown Post Office, and the Techny Post Office.

Many parts of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off were filmed at Glenbrook North High School in the fall of 1985 with students serving as extras (most of the interior shots, though, were filmed at the shuttered Maine North High School). The water tower upon which is written “Save Ferris” is near the village’s public library. The party scene from the film Uncle Buck was filmed at a house in the Highlands neighborhood, on Crabtree Lane. The grocery store scene in She’s Having a Baby was filmed at Sunset Foods, and scenes in Ordinary People and Weird Science were shot at the Northbrook Court shopping mall. A small scene from the film Risky Business was shot at a highway ramp off the Edens Expressway.

The Northbrook Park District, headquartered in Northbrook, operates recreational facilities. The 17.25-square-mile park district, formed in June 1927, serves all of Northbrook and some unincorporated areas within Cook County. The park district lies within the townships of Northfield and Wheeling. The Highwood Braves Red 13/14U team is a youth sponsored baseball team composed mostly of players from Northbrook, IL. The Highwood Braves 13U/14U team is a full-time travel baseball team participating in tournaments and Mid-Suburban Baseball League games. The Highwood Braves program was begun by Mr. Rich Synek of Glenbrook Sports Academy as full-time alternative baseball program designed to improve the competition young athletes receive.
