Rockford, Illinois

The Rockford area was originally home to Native American people of various tribes.  The first settlers to reach the area came in the 1830’s and settled on the banks of the Rock River .  The area developed quickly, with the first official buildings coming to the town just before its formal incorporation as a village which took place before 1840.  By the middle of the nineteenth century, Rockford had been officially incorporated as a town.

Just after it was incorporated, the railroad came to the area, further increasing development.  Development in the area included rapid growth in the areas of media and industry.  By the end of the nineteenth century, the city had established a newspaper, a women’s college (which eventually became Rockford College ), and a library.  Both furniture and agricultural machinery became big industries in the area and lasted until the middle of the twentieth century. Denver Property Management

Although Rockford was an established town, many people throughout the nation didn’t know anything about it because it is overshadowed by nearby Chicago .   At the end of the twentieth century, a major Hollywood motion picture about the area’s mid-twentieth century all-female baseball team brought national attention to the area.
 

Spring or autumn are the best times to visit Rockford , although a majority of visitors head to the area during the summer, probably more in accordance with standard vacation travel times than in regards to any qualities reflecting the area itself.  Summer in Rockford can actually get quite warm.  The average summer temperature is usually in the eighties but it comes along with high levels of humidity which can make it feel sweltering on some days.  In contrast, the evenings in the summer tend to cool off and are excellent for visitors to enjoy camping and other evening outdoor activities in the area.

It is not suggested that visitors plan trips to the Rockford area during the winter.  The winter months are very cold, with freezing temperatures all throughout the winter season.  There is just below forty inches of snowfall each year on average, although the city has been known to experience blizzards which can nearly double the amount of annual snowfall in one season.
