Besides Chicago, Skokie also shares its borders with Evanston, Lincolnwood, Niles, Morton Grove, Glenview, and Wilmette.

The area was incorporated in 1888 as Niles Centre. The name’s spelling changed slightly 20 later to “Niles Center”, but due to constant issues with the Post Office, confusing this name with the Village of Niles, it was eventually changed to “Skokie” on November 15, 1940.

1920’s flourished with construction of many Chicago style single family bungalows, as well as 2 & 3-flat buildings, although the boom was halted by the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed. The real estate residential and commercial developments in Skokie area returned shortly after the WWII ended.
