Barrington, Illinois Real Estate
Barrington Hills is a village located just about 40 miles northwest of Chicago, Illinois, United States. Fanning out over the 4 counties of Lake, Cook, Kane, and McHenry is the village of Barrington Hills. The rich farmland and abundant water supplies attracted the first settlers, Jesse Miller and William Van Orsdal in 1834. In the early 1840’s, other farm families arrived, many of them German and Irish immigrants who formed a town near present-day Sutton Road and Route 68.
