Spotlights of Inverness

Rich History

A dollar and a quarter went a long way back in the day—in 1840, the US government sold land in the Inverness area for $1.25 per acre. In 1926, Mr. Arthur T. McInthos—one of Chicago’s leading land developers—bought what is now Inverness. His vision for the land was to foster a friendly community for young couples to raise their families in a rural environment.

Unique Home Styles

As the man with the plan during the early development of Inverness, Way Thompson approved all house plans and neighborhoods for the Inverness area. The first ten homes in the village were decorated by his wife, Barbara. Inverness homes were all custom-built following the construction of the original 20 houses—the customization of those homes can be seen in the area’s varied housing styles to this day.

Employment Opportunities

Inverness is saturated with hardworking professionals—the most common jobs held by residents are management and sales occupations. In comparison to other places, Inverness employs an unusually high number of people working in legal occupations. Williamsburg Village—the only business park in Inverness—houses various professional services from insurance agencies to medical practices to law firms.
