Though this former dairy farming community's roots go back to the 1830s, Lisle became an incorporated town just 50 years ago. Lisle's quiet, two-block long main street doesn't look much different than it did a half century ago. But, the town has approved a downtown development project to create a mixed-use complex of shops, condominiums and office space on the site of the old Village Hall. Construction is slated to begin in the spring of 2008. Lisle is a vibrant community thanks to its location along the I-88 technology corridor west of Chicago. And, there's a METRA commuter station in the center of town. Lisle Community Park is also a popular gathering spot and the site of the annual 4th of July Eyes to the Skies festival that hosts the state's largest fireworks display. -D.R.
