Synopsis

Join host Geoffrey Baer for a revealing journey through the rich and surprising history of the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Take an intriguing look into the region that has grown into an economic powerhouse with some of the fastest growing communities in the state. Along the way, visit O'Hare airport, named for a downed WWII flying ace whose father was in business with Al Capone. Ride along on a foxhunt at a sprawling horse farm and see spectacular architectural gems both historic and modern. Go trackside at Arlington Park and learn how the Northwest suburbs gave us the handheld cell phone, the first McDonald's franchise, and the Weber Grill. From Park Ridge through the communities of Des Plaines, Mt. Prospect, Rosemont, Elk Grove Village, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, and many more, meet a host of characters who play a role in this story from Hillary Clinton to Dick Tracy to Baby Face Nelson. It is a captivating trip from the farm fields to the boomtowns just Northwest of Chicago!
