HISTORY OF EVERGREEN PARK

EVERGREEN PARK, COOK COUNTY, ILLINOIS - Over one hundred years ago, while other towns surrounding Chicago were requesting annexation to survive, Evergreen Park boldly decided to declare its independence. The population at the time was approximately 500 people. Fifty-one residents turned out on December 20, 1893 when forty of them voted for incorporation and four squared miles of area became the Village of Evergreen Park. Many of the original settlers were hard working farm families. The Village acquired its name from the park located at 97th Street and Homan Avenue, originally intended to be the center of town. This part of the village was laid out to resemble Paris, with its wagon wheel appearance, but development in other directions has since caused it to be a residential section. The center of Evergreen Park is now 95th Street and Kedzie Avenue. From those few early settlers in the 1800's through the pre-war years of truck gardens, the post–war years and population boom of the 1950’s, to its present stature as one of the leading southwest suburbs of Cook County, Evergreen Park continues to progress and flourish. Our 75th Anniversary was celebrated in 1968 and our 100th Anniversary was celebrated in 1993. Time capsules were buried at each of these ceremonies and will be opened in the year 2018. Evergreen Park is a residential suburb located astride 95th Street (U.S. Route 12 and U.S. Route 20) adjacent to the attractive Beverly Hills section of Chicago and seventeen miles southwest of the Loop. The Village encompasses an area of approximately four square miles and is bordered by the City of Chicago on the north, south and east, and by the Village of Oak Lawn on the west. Evergreen Park is known as the "Village of Churches" as evidenced by the thirteen established religious congregations serving the community.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Joe Curley


After high school I immediately pursued my love of auto racing and joined a professional racing team that had a drag and long-track car. We raced the NASCAR circuit during 1964/65 (I was on the pit crew) and I drove the drag-strip car, which ran the quarter mile in under 11 seconds at 130 MPH. The race-to-race travel schedule was awful on a young guy’s romantic life, so I put racing behind me and set my sights on making money. I got a job in the marketing department of a national sales company, met my wife, Phyllis, got married in Chicago in 1969 (40+ years now), and transferred to Orlando, Florida in 1971.
I worked in Customer Relations for 6 years with a utility company, then on to become the Director of Publicity for Florida Cypress Gardens (the world-famous water ski show attraction). From there, I went to Martin Marietta (now Lockheed Martin) as the Director of Public Relations. Unlike my high school days (daze, as my classmates would call it), education now seemed more important, so I went back to school, which culminated with being selected for and completing the company’s executive MBA program at a local college.
In the fall of 1984, I left Martin Marietta to open my own Public Relations business. It grew to be one of the largest PR firms in Central Florida area with national clients like Tupperware, Universal Studios, AT&T, Holiday Inn International, AAA, KOA Campgrounds. In 2004, I sold the firm and retired.
Phyllis and I now live in the Sarasota area overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and are lucky to have our boat docked behind our house. We live in a small planned “boating community,” so all the neighbors really get along well and cruise and party together. We’re hooked on boating (big time) and we cruise extensively for extended periods to the Florida Keys and Bahamas. Somewhere between all of this, I got my private pilot’s license and am rated for twin-engine and instrument flying ... in fact, I earned my license at Chicago Midway Airport in 1971(lots of BIG planes to avoid!)
My love of auto racing still burns within me and it has been a serious hobby of mine. I restore and show classic “muscle cars” of the 1960s and ‘70s. I currently have six: a 1973 DeTomaso Pantera with a 425 HP engine; a 1974 Pantera with twin-turbos producing 680 HP; a 2005 Ford GT (the GT-40 type not a Mustang); a 1966 AC Shelby Cobra with 427 side-oiler and low-rise dual quads; a 2008 Cobra Jet Mustang, #27 of only 50 produced by Ford Racing; a 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt, one of only 100 produced to specifically beat the RamChargers on the drag strip. All are restored to showroom quality.
One of my former PR agency clients for 20 plus year –Universal Studios—called me back to work 5 years ago and I now am consulting again for Universal Studios’ international theme parks. An honor, dear to my heart, was bestowed on me in 2009 when I was inducted into the Evergreen Park Community High School Hall of Fame. School teacher, Mrs. Ardith Inman, was also inducted at the same time (she was my detention teacher, go figure!).
Phyllis and I do not have any children, but believe me; the “boy toys” and travel keep us real busy. We have traveled overseas extensively and are now focused on experiencing more of the great USA locations. We feel very fortunate that we have been blessed with good health and economic success and are thankful every day for these very special gifts from God.
