Preserving the Charm of Carol Stream After a Fire Loss

Fires can be Devastating, but our Fast Response can make it "Like it never even happened."

In a community estimated to be home to over 39,000, Carol Stream continues to grow as a predominantly residential area. Unlike other bedroom communities for Chicago, multiple commercial properties and businesses have grown footholds in the town. This was always the intention of the developer creating this community in the 1950s and 60s. Carol Stream was meant to be a place that families never had to leave to find what they needed. This was an aspiring goal for the construction being so close to the country's third-largest city.

'A Great Place to Live and Work'

The motto of this substantially sized community is 'A Great Place to Live and Work.' This embodies the original spirit and optimism of developer Jay Stream. From 1959's earliest meetings about the town's development, it was always in the works for corporations to set up shop and thrive within the area to provide stable and gainful employment to residents. By envisioning a town where people did not need to commute to Chicago, they could have a quieter and less bustling life outside of Wheaton, IL, where Stream purchased the land to break ground on this development.

The town would get named after Jay Stream's daughter, Carol, after becoming involved in a devastating car accident. After nearly four months in a coma, Carol would awaken to finally see the village that shared her name.

A Bedroom Community for the Greater Chicago Area

Despite the intentions to be self-sustaining from the magnetism of employment opportunities and business in Chicago, Carol Stream would ultimately partially become a bedroom community within the sprawling metropolitan area. Those that do not mind a reasonable commute of just 29 miles on the roadways can often reach the cities in less than an hour outside of peak travel times. The primary route from Carol Stream to inner-city Chicago follows interstates 355 and 290.
