Schaumburg Travel Guide
Schaumburg Local History
Schaumberg was founded around 1835 by German immigrants; in fact in the 1850 census only 28% of the population was Yankee while 48% were German. Even though German owned most of the land in Schaumberg, records show little if any antagonism between the Yankees and the Germans, as the Yankees were more interested in the move west and the promise of newly opened lands.
The town was put on the map in 1956 due to the construction of multiple highways connecting it to Chicago and O'Hare being expanded into a major international airport. The population at this time was only 130 people, meaning that the town grew by over 1700 people a year.
