The area known as Westmont was inhabited by the Potawatomi Indians prior to the year 1833. The U.S. Government made several unsuccessful attempts to persuade the Indians to move from this area, until, in the year 1833, the Indians held a general council in Chicago and, under coercion, agreed to vacate their land for nominal payment. The Indians had established an elaborate system of trails, which later became the settler’s first highways including The Buffalo Trail and the Ottawa and LaSalle Trail. The Buffalo Trail, today named Naperville Road, was later used as a stage line between Chicago and Naperville. The Ottawa and LaSalle Trail is today designated as Ogden Avenue or Route 34.
