The village of Kaneville, Illinois is a quiet community in southwestern Kane County just a short drive from Vital Wellness Center within Elburn, Illinois. Kaneville was incorporated in November of 2006 and is located 12 miles northwest of Aurora and 48 miles west of the Chicago Loop. At the time of the 2010 census, there were approximately 484 residents in the village which comprises a total area of roughly one square mile.
The first known settlers in Kaneville Township were Amos and Amanda Minor who built a home on Perry Road in the year of 1836. The village of Kaneville developed at the intersection of the furrows that were plowed for the stage coach to pass through and marked the way from Batavia to Dixon as well as the trail from Chicago to Galena. The village was originally known as “Royalton.” However, it was soon discovered that this name had already been taken by another settlement, and its name was later changed to Kaneville after Elias Kane, who was the first Illinois Secretary of State and later became a United States senator representing the state of Illinois. Due to its accessibility, the village flourished and with it came the development of roads, stores, and churches. By the 1960s, the Ravlin subdivision was added to Kaneville which doubled the size of the community.
The issue of incorporating the town was discussed during several public meetings, and the residents finally voted to incorporate the town in November of 2006. This resulted in an area of approximately one square mile, centered at Main Street and Harter Road, which constitutes the village of Kaneville today. After incorporation, the village officials were appointed in accordance with Illinois statutes by a Kane County judge based upon references submitted by several residents after an invitation to apply was posted at several locations within the village. The first appointed officials were selected in the general election held on April 17, 2007.
