As a Ford dealer servicing Berwyn, it is hard to imagine Al Piemonte Ford fitting into Berwyn’s history. Of course our dealership has not always been around. In fact, the city of Berwyn used to be covered by marshes and ice. When the glaciers began to recede toward the end of the last ice age, Lake Chicago came into existence. This lake grew smaller over time and eventually became Lake Michigan. A stream that connected Lake Michigan to the Illinois River was a swampy area known as Mud Lake. This swamp stretched all the way toward the south border of what is known today as Berwyn. Theodore Doty was among the first to obtain land in Berwyn back in 1846. Doty constructed a small width road (called Plank Road) that went from Chicago to Ottawa. This is now Ogden Avenue today. By 1856, Thomas F. Baldwin bought over 300 acres of land with the dream of developing a high class community called “LaVergne”, but not too many people wanted to move to this wetland area. In order to get people to relocate to the area, Baldwin hooked up with the Burlington and Quincy Railroad in 1862 and sold them a wide strip of property. The rail line was opened in 1864, and LaVergne station was built. Unfortunately, there was a financial crisis in 1873, and to make matters worse, Baldwin passed away in 1876, slowing down the growth of the entire area. His daughter Emma took over her father’s estate, and she sold most of this in 1879 to realtors regulated by Marshall Field. Building codes were enforced, and costs for building homes were implemented. By 1890, Marshall Field sold over a 100 acre plot of land to Charles Piper and William Andrews. It would be these two individuals that would continue Berwyn’s growth and give the city its actual name. By the 1920’s Berwyn was a rapidly growing suburb where two-story bungalows were constructed under tough building codes. Modern day Berwyn still holds its claim to fame by having the largest selection of Chicago-style bungalows throughout the country. Al Piemonte Ford respects the history of Berwyn, and we invite all Berwyn residents over to our Chicagoland dealership.
