Lemont is a village located in Cook, DuPage, and Will counties in the U.S. state of Illinois, and is a suburb of Chicago. The population was 16,000 as of the 2010 census. Lemont is home to the Argonne National Laboratory and to Cog Hill Golf & Country Clubb (Former home of the PGA Tour's Western Open and BMW Championship).NameLemont was originally known as Keepataw and a post office was established in 1840 as Keepatau. After that, it was named Athens and then Palmyra. The name Lemont was chosen in 1850 at the suggestion of Lemuel Brown, the postmaster and justice of the peace, or perhaps by his brother Nathaniel Brown.HistoryEven before white settlers came to Lemont, Native Americans traveled the Des Plaines River in birch bark canoes on trading trips between the Mississippi River and Lake Michigan. The native Potawatomi lived off the land in this area, directly using natural resources for food, shelter, clothing and medicine. In the 18th century, French voyageurs traveled down the Des Plaines River, trading Native Americans metal, beads and cloth for animal furs and changing the Native American lifestyle forever.Plan your trip to Lemont and other United States destinations using our handy United States itinerary planner.
