Kenilworth, IL (Cook County) At just one-mile square, Kenilworth (pop. 2,500) is the smallest of the North Shore suburbs and the only one developed as a planned community. Located 18 miles north of downtown Chicago, this close-knit community enjoys a mainly residential atmosphere. The village’s tree-lined streets hold fine examples of Queen Anne, Victorian and Prairie Style architecture. Architect and town planner George W. Maher, a contemporary and colleague of Frank Lloyd Wright, designed approximately 37 homes in Kenilworth. His town planning expertise and civic dedication further enriched the village with most of the parks and civic sculptures – including the entry fountain, stone benches, planter urns, bridges and entry pylons – that residents enjoy today. Kenilworth’s unique size and atmosphere, as well as its proximity to the city, make it a sought after suburb in which to live.
