Harvey, Cook County, IL 60426

The city of Harvey is situated 19 miles south of the Loop with Dixmoor, Riverdale, and Blue Island to the north;  Posen and Markham to the west; South Holland, Phoenix and Dolton to the east; and East Hazel Crest to the south.

The 1889 brainchild of Christian leader Turlington W. Harvey, the community was founded on the principle of Christian values and temperance (no alcohol). A close associate of Dwight Moody (who founded the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago), Harvey sought to model his town on that of Pullman which resulted in him buying up lots of properties which he then transferred to the Harvey Land Association.

Consequently Turlington Harvey (a wealthy Chicago lumberman and banker) has been credited with transforming an “unbroken prairie” devoid of streets, sidewalks, water, sewers, factories, schools, churches or homes and thus laying the foundations for the thriving city it now is (though it should be noted temperance was quickly relaxed by 1895!)

Known at one time as ‘The Magic City,’ Harvey is the birthplace of famous television actor and singer Bill Hayes (‘Days of Our Lives’) and currently boasts a population of 30,000 residents in the 6.2 square miles of this totally land-based community.

Thomas W. Lynch & Associates also provide services to clients in nearby Midlothian, IL and Blue Island, IL.
