Westmont has rich history that started with a businessman named William L. Gregg, establishing a brick-making company along the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy railroad. Noting the natural clay in the land and the area’s high elevation, he chose the site now known as Westmont. The clay in the earth provided excellent brick-building material while the high elevation was ideal for railroad cars loaded with bricks to coast downhill back to Chicago. The Excelsior Brick Making Company stayed in business for ten years, and a village grew around it. The community was named so because it was the highest location west of Chicago along the railroad. Residents and visitors can learn more about Westmont’s history by visiting William L. Gregg’s original 1871 home. Now known as the Gregg House Museum, which houses the Westmont Historical Society, it displays artifacts and exhibits, proudly sharing Westmont’s history with all.
