Chapter 7 Business Bankruptcy

Sometimes Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the only solution for business-owners who face the unfortunate fact that they need to wind-up their business because of insufficient profits or to service its debts.

Summit, Cook County, IL 60501

The village of Summit, Chicago, is arguably best known for being the setting of Ernest Hemingway’s 1927 short story ‘The Killers’ which went on to become a movie that launched the career of the iconic director Stanley Kubrick. However, there is much more to Summit than literary links.

Situated 12 miles southwest of Chicago’s Loop, the appropriately named village of Summit sits on the gentle rise separating Chicago River from the Des Plaines. Located along the Illinois and Michigan Canal, Summit is home to over 10,600 residents today when at the time of incorporation in 1890 the population stood at just 547, and before that the area was well-traversed by various indigenous Indian tribes for centuries.

But as a settlement Summit has always been marked by an extremely diverse ethnic mix with early Irish canal workers setting the pace followed by Germans, Poles, Croats, Slovaks, Russians, Italians and Dutch, with African Americans and Mexicans arriving by the turn of the century, and Summit’s first Greek contingent by 1910.

Apart from work provided by the canal and railroad, Summit was principally known for its cultivation of vegetable produce that sold well in Chicago city. In 1907 Summit was home to the world’s biggest corn-milling plant, and between 1916 and 1922 the Elgin Motor Car Company was producing 8,000 automobiles.
