Homewood is a small suburb south of Chicago. Before its founding, its site was located on the Vincennes Trail, a Native American travel route between Vincennes, Indiana and the mouth of the Chicago River. In 1853 the village was founded as Hartford, but until 1869 when the present name was adopted, it was known as Thornton Station. The village is located adjacent to Interstate 80, and is served by the Metra commuter rail as well as Amtrak. For over a century Homewood has been a destination for golfers, largely for the Ravisloe Country Club west of the railroad tracks. Part of the Chicagoland Tri-State Area.
