    Flossmoor History
    In 1891, the Illinois Central Railroad purchased 160 acres of land west of the rail line/ north of Flossmoor Road. In the 1890’s they sold the property for development and sponsored a contest to select a name for the Village. “Floss Moor” (a Scotch name for “dew on the heather/ gentle rolling countryside”) was selected.
