The road connecting Chicago, Elgin and Galena, the Plank Road, which ran parallel to Irving Park Road, promoted travel, trade and settlement in the region. It also contributed to growth and gave an insight into the role of transport in the future of a community. The settlement pattern also changed from scattered to coherent after the railway line came to the area in 1873.
From 1946, Douglas' Old Orchard was transformed into what was soon to be called O'Hare Field. Many of the buildings not incorporated into Bensenville were demolished or postponed to allow the construction of O'Hare Airport, which began its domestic commercial operations in 1955. O's Hare offered an opportunity for industrial development, which enlarged the residential area of the airport. The airport also caused considerable noise pollution, and many of its buildings had to be demolished in the 1950s and 1960s to accommodate the city.
The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad began operating between Chicago and Elgin, with stops in the area. As early as 1874, 300,000 gallons of milk were transported per year between Bensenville and Chicago.
Farmers from a wide geographical area, including residents of Washington Island, Wisconsin, shipped their potatoes to Edward J. Anderson's Potato Factory on Green Street near County Line Road for processing and shipping to their customers. Campbell's Soup Company has signed a contract with farmers north of Irving Park Road to grow tomatoes harvested by "Mexican-American migrant workers" and brought to Chicago.
In 1872, the current site of Bensenville was purchased by a group that included members of the Churchville Improvement Association and the Fenton High School Board of Trustees. Forty to eight hectares were bought by Louis Schmidt for the property, which later became known as "Churchville." Later, part of the property, Grove Farm, was acquired by F Benton High School.
Early settlers in the Bensenville area became friends with a group of Native Americans from the Illinois Indian Reservation who taught them how to hunt game, fish on ice, and grow crops. Since the old Indian Trail was a high and dry trail at this time of year, the Chicago and Galena Stage Line chose Grand Avenue (once called Whiskey Road) as the best route to Chicago. Eleven brave men massacred the Lee family and then followed the trail of the animals, which we now call "Grand Avenue."
