Incorporated in 1947


Harwood Heights is a village in Cook County, IL. Harwood Heights has often been referred to as an “island” surrounded by the city of Chicago. It is often mistaken for part of the city instead of a suburb. Since Chicago rejected the suburb's bid for annexation in 1947, Harwood Heights has preferred to be on its own and although it shares a library, a park district, and a high school with Norridge, the community steadfastly holds to a separate identity. The origin of the town's name is uncertain, but some believe it results from combining parts of the names of Harlem Avenue and Norwood Park Township.
