Located in the middle of the scenic Kankakee River Valley, Wilmington is known by many as “The Island City.”
Wilmington’s rich farmland combines with its historic downtown, featuring buildings constructed as early as the mid-1800s. Agricultural quietude combines with suburban culture to form an outstanding place to raise a family.
Wilmington is proud to have been part of both the historic Route 66 Highway and the Underground Railroad. Lovers of boating, fishing, hunting and the Great Outdoors in general need look no further than Wilmington.
Residents and businesses alike enjoy the hometown amenities and state-of-the-art services that abound in the Village of Woodridge.
Surrounded by natural wonders, including two rivers and eight forest preserves, residents benefit from top-notch schools, a wide range of housing options, progressive community programs, a booming retail community, flourishing businesses and industries, and a wealth of job opportunities — more than 75 percent of working-age residents are employed in “white collar” jobs and the median family income is about $62,000.
