Welcome to DuPage County

For over 140 years, enlightened Republican leadership has made DuPage County a great place to live, raise a family and run a business. The DuPage County Republican Party and our associates are committed to ensuring you maintain the quality of life we have enjoyed for so many years.

DuPage County is blessed to have a top notch educational system. Our K-12 education system is one of the best in the state if not the country. The College of DuPage, in Glen Ellyn, is one of the largest community colleges in the United States. Wheaton College is one of the most well-known and respected evangelical Christian colleges in the country. Benedictine University, Elmhurst College and North Central College also have long and respected histories in their communities. There are many other prominent colleges and universities throughout the county.

DuPage County is the primary location of the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor. It is home to many large corporations, including but not limited to companies like: Ace Hardware (Oak Brook); Eby-Brown (Naperville); Hub Group (Downers Grove); and Navistar International (Warrenville.)

DuPage County also hosts world renowned laboratories. Fermilab has the world’s second-highest-energy particle accelerator in the world. Argonne National Laboratory is one of the United States government’s oldest and largest science and engineering research laboratories. Please note that both of these laboratories conduct tours of their facilities.

We are proud of the cultural atmosphere that we’ve developed in DuPage County. DuPage County is home to several museums and historical sites that include: the Naper Settlement and DuPage Children’s Museum in Naperville; the DuPage County Historical Museum in Wheaton; and Elmhurst‘s Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art and Elmhurst Art Museum to name a few. Oakbrook Terrace’s Drury Lane Theatre is a vibrant live theatre in DuPage County.

The Tivoli Theatre, one of the first theaters in the United States to be equipped with sound, is still in use in Downers Grove. In addition to showing movies, the Tivoli is home to several local performing arts groups.

The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County owns and manages 25,000 acres of prairies, woodlands and wetlands.

More than 4 million visitors each year enjoy 60 forest preserves, 145 miles of trails, and five education centers. Local urban parks include Lombard’s Lilacia Park, Naperville’s Centennial Beach, Woodridge’s Cypress Cove Family Aquatic Park and Wheaton’s Cosley Zoo. Privately funded attractions include Lisle’s Morton Arboretum.

Shopping malls in DuPage County include Oakbrook Center, which is the largest open air mall in the nation, Westfield Fox Valley, Yorktown Center, Town Square Wheaton, and Stratford Square Mall. In addition, many of DuPage County’s towns have prosperous and quaint downtown areas, especially in Naperville, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, Downers Grove and Hinsdale, which are mixed with boutiques, upscale chain stores and restaurants.

As you can tell, we are very proud of the Republican leadership that has made DuPage County such a great place to live.
