The population today is 30,068 est. Along with neighboring Skokie, Illinois, and several other suburbs, Niles is partly in Niles Township, from whence it draws its name. It should not to be confused with "Niles Centre," the original name of Skokie. There is no clear indication of the origin of the name "Niles." In 1929 the Chicago Tribune ran an article opining that the name was taken from the Niles Register, a newspaper published in the 1820s out of Washington, DC and distributed nationally.

What Makes Niles Unique?

  • Niles was the first community in Illinois and one of the first in the United States to establish free ambulance service, in 1946.
  • Leaning Tower of Niles - was completed in 1934 by industrialist Robert Ilg as part of a recreation park for employees of the Ilg Hot Air Electric Ventilating Company of Chicago, IL. It is situated at 6300 W. Touhy Avenue and it is a 1/2 size copy of the original tower in Pisa, Italy, which is a Niles' sister city.
  • "The Tam" - another notable landmark is the Tam O'Shanter Golf Course (today called "The Tam"), which is currently under the ownership of the Niles Park District. From 1941-1957, the course was host to the All American Open on the PGA Tour. In 1964 and 1965, the course hosted the Western Open.
