Established in 1956, Burr Ridge has grown steadily over the years. Burr Ridge still sports the wetlands, ponds and burr oak trees of its youth. What were once large tracts of open farmland is now a thriving village of residential, commercial and industrial area. Some areas of Burr Ridge are zoned for horses. The Kohler Waters Spa is a great place for relaxation and is located in the Burr Ridge Village Shopping Center. Elementary School Districts 62, 107, 180 and 181 and High School Districts 86, (Hinsdale South and Hinsdale Central) and 204 (Lyons Township) serve the village. The Stevenson Expressway (I-55) and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) intersect in the village.
