Understanding Northfield: A History

Part of the affluent North Shore, Northfield is a lovely suburban retreat. The main attraction might be the excellent public schools–including the renowned New Trier High School– but that’s definitely not all there is to love about the area! 

Northfield residents enjoy picturesque parks, stunning homes, and a vibrant community. A great parks system keeps the area active and, with the Skokie Lagoons and Erickson Woods, spending time in nature doesn’t need to be a special occasion. Northfield offers a laid-back lifestyle- including friendly block parties, fun summer festivals, and weekend days exploring the area’s excellent shops and restaurants!

Northfield has long been a favorite for buyers and renters. Homes range from sprawling ranch homes and historic mansions to lovely condominiums. One of the area’s calling cards is its large lot sizes, the majority zoned for over an acre of land. 

Just 17 miles from the Loop, residents have easy access to the Chicago (and beyond!) via I-94 and I-294 and nearby Metra stations!
