River Forest Illinois

River Forest, Illinois is a village within the county of Cook. It is closely affiliated with its neighboring village, Oak Park, sharing one of the most impressive public high school facilities in the country, known by locals as OPRF (Oak Park River Forest, obviously), located in Oak Park. River Forest is also home of two small universites, Domincan University and Concordia University.

The village also plays host to many more Frank Lloyd Wright's (the famous architect whose home and tours are available in to be seen in Oak Park) architectural designs, such as the Winslow House by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Because of its short distance from dowtown Chicago, River Forest has been home to many notorious Italian organized crime families since the early twentieth century. Although not as many famous persons have resided there as have in its neighboring suburb Oak Park, former Mystery Science Theater 3000 actor Kevin Murphy grew up in River Forest. Famed radio commentator Paul Harvey also resides in River Forest.
