History

Matteson was named after the 10th governor of Illinois, Joel Matteson, over 150 years ago. The community began as an agricultural trade center and gradually transformed into a major retail center, as well as a market for commercial, office and hotel development. Matteson is well known for being the retail hub of the southern suburbs. The Village became a regional retail center in 1973 when the Lincoln Mall opened at the intersection of Cicero Avenue (IL Rt. 50) and Lincoln Highway (US Rt. 30).
