Plainfield IL - Downtown

Kendall County is a small, but rapidly growing county that has the majority of its population in the northeast, and along the Fox River (the only river in the county) which runs through the northwestern section of the county. Many new subdivisions have been constructed in this county, which has produced considerable population growth.


Southern Kendall still remains largely agricultural. Kendall County has two primary ranges of low-lying hills formed by what is known as an end moraine. Ransom, the more predominant of the two moraines, runs through the west and north-central part of the county. This moraine has created elevations of over 800 feet (240 m), in contrast to elevations in southern Kendall County that drop to the lower 500 feet (150 m) range.

Minooka, the other major end moraine ridge in Kendall County, runs along its entire eastern border with Will County. The two moraines intersect at almost a right angle in the township of Oswego. The only designated state park in the county is Silver Springs State Park.


Kendall County was listed as the fastest growing County in the USA from 2000 to 2009 experiencing a population growth rate of 110.4% in this period. The reason for this growth is heavy suburbanization stemming from the metro Chicago.
