HISTORY:

The village is renowned for the quality and architectural variety of its housing stock, as well as its proximity to numerous country clubs. It is the second safest suburb in the Southland of Cook County, ranking just below the neighboring village of Olympia Fields.

Although Flossmoor has roots in the 19th-century, it was first recognized as an affluent community in the 1920s when it became known as a cultural and recreational mecca of elite country clubs and stately golf courses. The 1920 PGA National Championship  and the Western Open golf tournaments of 1906 and 1912 were played in Flossmoor. It was incorporated as a village in 1924. In the years since, Flossmoor was not only seen as the "status" suburb of south/southwest Suburban Chicago but also as one of "the fashionable places to "Live In" nationally.

Children in grades K-8, attend schools under the jurisdiction of public school district 161. School District 161 has four elementary schools, Western Avenue, Serena Hills, Flossmoor Hills, and Heather Hill, all of which serve students in grades K-5.

The majority of students in the area then go on to attend the local public high school, Homewood-Flossmoor High School (School District #233), which is a three-time recipient of the U.S. Department of Education's Blue Ribbon Award for excellence.
