The area, which is currently occupied by South Holland, Illinois, was first settled in the Netherlands in 1846 by immigrants from South Holland. In 1847, the area was again connected to the state of Illinois and in 1850 to South Illinois.
Founded in 1846 and incorporated as a village in 1894, the municipality has preserved a large part of its ethnic and agricultural heritage for over a hundred years. As farmland was converted into housing estates and industrial parks and the population grew larger and more diverse, South Holland played a greater role in the economic development of the State of Illinois and the United States. Besides transforming the rural economy in the South of Holland, developers and former urban dwellers have done little to change the conservative character that the Dutch founders had given the country.
This conservatism was challenged in 1969, when federal authorities ordered the primary school district 151, 151 of which is in South Holland, to be desegregated as the first school district in the north. Several referendums on raising taxes to fund schools In South Holland, white voters who started sending their children to separate private schools were losing out. This retreat manifested itself in large numbers of families who took their children out of public schools after they were de-Gregorized, leading to a decline in the financial resources to finance their schools and a decline in enrollment, as most of the remaining students were black.
South Holland developed into a commuter suburb of the 20th century, but still retained its ethnic past. Although agriculture lost importance at that time, it continued to provide income for Dutch farmers and Mexican migrant workers until the 1960s. The last attack on agriculture came in the 1970s, when the local government used industrial parks as a tax base.
Chicagoans seeking to escape the difficulties of urban life and developers seeking to meet their housing needs found the suburb a desirable location. Attracted by the flat prairie in the Calumet region, the settlers moved from supplying the emerging city of Chicago with fresh produce to markets and gardening. By 1892, they had dominated commercial production and distribution of grain and began to grow grain such as corn, wheat, soybeans, cotton, oats and wheat flour.
Median income per household in the village was $60,246 and median income per family was $67,451. In 1892, Illinois was the second largest city after Chicago with 1.3 million inhabitants. The median poverty rate for a two-person household in South Chicago was 2.5 percent, while the median income for a family was 67,451, according to the Census Bureau.
