Mayor's Corner

Welcome to Tinley Park!

The Village of Tinley Park was incorporated in 1892 but the area was settled primarily by emigrants from the Eastern United States, Germany, Ireland, England, Scotland and Canada beginning as early as the 1830s. As the country's railroad empire was growing, the Village of Bremen was located on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad lines in 1853. This influenced the Village's rapid expansion, and in 1890 the name Bremen was changed to Tinley Park, in honor of the Village's first railroad station agent, Samuel Tinley Sr.
