Romeoville, IL

In 1837, a new town was platted and named “Romeo” in honor of Shakespeare’s famous romantic hero. Through the years the name was changed to Romeoville.  If you are wondering about Juliet, this town was platted at the same time next to Romeo.  Today, the town of Juliet is known as Joliet.  I guess there was a love story behind the name of this town!
