City of Elgin

This city is beautifully situated on both banks of the Fox River, chiefly, however, on the East side; the Galena Railroad passes through it from Chicago, from which it is distant about forty-two miles. It is next in importance to Aurora in importance of size and business, and has a population of about 5,000 persons.

Elgin was settled in or about the year 1835, first by I.T. Gifford and his brother Hezekiah Gifford and their families, and also S.J. Kimball and others. They had to endure no little hardships from the unimproved state of the country, and had to provide in primitive fashion for all their wants. They manfully, however, grappled with their difficulties, first erecting log houses, then a substitute for a mill, when the then distant mills were too far to be reached in the winter, until in 1836 Mr. Gifford erected a Grist mill on the East side, and Mr. Kimball a Saw mill on the West side, having previously completed a dam across the river to give them the requisite water power.

The country around Elgin is very beautiful, highly cultivated, and also many Dairies are established from whence a large supply of milk is daily exported to Chicago, also Mr. Merrill gathers up all the choice butter of the district and forwards it to his agents in Chicago. This city is well located and possesses a large number of business stores, and several manufactories. There is a large woolen mill, two flour mills, several carriage and plow manufactories, and others, also, for furniture. The local business is considerable, while there is a large business done at the Grain warehouses, which are constantly sending large quantities to Chicago. This city must increase as the whole country is further cultivated and its resources fully developed.

There is also, in addition to the Public Schools, a large and well built brick Seminary, situated on high ground and presenting the appearance of a good substantial edifice, well fitted for a Collegiate Institution.
