History
Norman Rexford came to Chicago from Charlotte, Vermont, in 1835 and became the first permanent settler of Blue Island. In 1836, he established the Blue Island House, near the intersection of present-day Western Avenue and Gregory Street just north of the Western Avenue bridge.Through the 1970s, Blue Island's central business district ("uptown" to the locals) was regarded as an important regional commercial center, with stores such as Woolworth's, Kline's, Sears, Montgomery Ward, Spiegel and Steak 'n Shake.[32] Today, downtown Blue Island is better known for its antique stores, art galleries, ethnic delicatessens and fine dining.
