Rockford, Illinois City Info

Rockford was founded in 1834 by Germanicus Kent as the village of Midway because it was approximately midway between his home of Galena and the city of Chicago. Kent, a land speculator, established a settlement on the west side of the Rock River and was soon joined by Daniel Shaw Haight, who established a town on the east side of the Rock. While the settlements quickly became known as Kentville and Haightville, the area continued to be recognized as Midway until 1837 when the founders and several respected members of their communities met in Chicago and officially changed Midway’s name to Rock Ford.

While the earliest settlers were from New York and New England, beginning around the 1850’s immigration drove the population growth of the region and it became a virtual melting pot. The Irish arrived in the early 1850’s followed by the Swedes. In many areas of Rockford the Swedish lanquage was as common as English well into the 1920’s. Other ethnic groups also appeared including the Italians, Poles and Lithuanians, and more recently Laotians, Vietnamese and Hispanics.

By the turn of the century, Rockford was recognized as a vital industrial hub and was a manufacturing center for machine tools, furniture, agricultural equipment and more.  Many nationally known manufacturers called Rockford home including Ingersoll Milling Machine Company, Greenlee Brothers, Barber-Coleman and others. 

Like many industrialized cities, Rockford’s industry took a major hit following World War II. Many core industries including furniture and agricultural equipment manufacturing were nearly extinct by the 1960s, while others including machine tool and fastener manufacturing are a fraction the size that they once were.  While the mid-80’s found Rockford with record level unemployment, today Rockford’s economic base has evolved to include an abundance of professional and business services, in addition to manufacturing, resulting in a strong local ecomony.  Rockford is now a thriving commercial hub for the region, as well as a cultural and entertainment center.
