Hoffman Estates is a northwestern suburb of Chicago in Illinois. The village is located primarily in Cook County with a small section in Kane County, Illinois. As of the 2000 census, the village population was 49,495 and estimated to be 52,520 in 2003. The village was incorporated in 1959 [1]. The village now serves as the headquarters location for the Sears Holdings Corporation. It is also the home of the Chicago Storm of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the Chicago Shamrox of the National Lacrosse League and the Chicago Slaughter of the Continental Indoor Football League. Starting in 2009, the village will also become the home of the Heartland International Tattoo, one of the largest music & dance festivals of its kind in the Midwest.

In 1954, a local farmer sold his 160-acre (0.65 km2) farm to Sam and Jack Hoffman, owners of the Father and Son Construction Company (referred to as "F & S Construction"), for a subdivision in Cook County. The land, now known as Parcel A, was located east of Roselle Road between Golf and Higgins Roads. The first homeowners began to move into the new subdivision in late 1955.

The homes were built on half-acre lots. On September 19, 1959, residents voted to incorporate as the Village of Hoffman Estates. (An earlier referendum among residents, in 1958, had endorsed changing the name to "Twinbrook", which was the name of the telephone exchange for the area, by a vote of 236 to 134.

However, the residents' views were overruled by the Homeowners' Association board of directors. The builder, Jack Hoffman, obviously wanted the community to continue with the name "Hoffman Estates", and the board said they did not want to antagonize Hoffman, who was donating schools and other community benefits; additionally, the head of the village board claimed that the name Hoffman Estates had been legally established "through usage" and thus could not be changed.

This decision led to the resignation of six members of the board, and considerable internal turmoil with charges that the board engaged in "deceit and the use of half-truths".[1] In a later residents' vote, the name Hoffman Estates was chosen for use in incorporation.) The charter was issued on September 23, 1959. The population at the time was about 8,000, and the incorporated area was just under three square miles. Hoffman Estates turned into a major subdivision with Centex Corporation mass-producing houses on adjacent lots, rather than custom-building them on scattered lots. Some of the lots west of Roselle Road had been built on soft earth, marsh, and peat bogs; by the late 1960s, a few foundations had begun to crumble.
