The Village of Hodgkins prides itself on being a small town, centered on family values and with big hearts. Aside from a close-knit sense of community, Hodgkin’s location has played the most significant role in its growth. Hodgkin’s population exploded in the 1800's as Irish and Italian immigrants came to the area to work on the construction of the Illinois & Michigan Canal, located just one mile south. Industry has consistently shaped the direction of Hodgkins with nearby limestone quarries attracting stone companies and its strategic location a perfect fit for transportation industry hubs. UPS operates the largest package sorting center in the world, named CACH, which employs more than 9,000 people under one roof. In 1997, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad opened an intermodal freight facility in Hodgkins, taking advantage the prime location to move goods faster and more efficiently. Despite the comings and goings, Hodgkin’s remains a small family town within reach of the bustling western suburbs.
