History of Churchill in Schaumburg
The Churchill subdivision is located west of the Golf-Higgins Road intersection in Schaumburg. Even though it is in Schaumburg, it is surrounded by the 3 sides of Hoffman Estates. This 50-acre neighborhood was built by Hoffman-Rosner Corp., formally known as F&S Construction. It has 142 homesites, each with at least a ¼ acre of land, and were considered an exclusive colony of fine traditional and contemporary homes. The Churchill development plans were in the works for 2 years before construction.
The homes were carefully arranged to provide privacy as well as quiet and beautiful views. They were created with affordability and high design quality in mind. Some of the home types include a California modern ranch, French Provincial, Contemporary and New England Colonial 2 story, Rustic Country ranch and Traditional split-level designs.
At the time, the Schaumburg School Board built a new school and named it after Winston C. Churchill. The Churchill subdivision was named as such because it is a community that surrounds the Winston Churchill Elementary School. It was on property purchased from Hoffman Rosner and the Trustees decided to honor the memory of him. Also, in 1967 a 2-foot square bronze plaque honoring the memory of Sir Winston Churchill was dedicated by the Village of Schaumburg and the Hoffman-Rosner Corp. It was mounted on the brick and stone monument at the entrance of the Churchill subdivision. The plaque was even approved by Lady Clementine Churchill who was Winston’s widow.
It is minutes away from Woodfield Mall and near major expressways, parks, dining, shopping, and all the amenities that Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates have to offer. Winston Churchill Elementary School is within walking distance and Dwight D. Eisenhower Junior High is within ½ a mile from the Churchill subdivision.
