                                 ______
                                 

                        HON. WILLIAM O. LIPINSKI

                              of illinois

                    in the house of representatives

                        Monday, October 21, 1996

  Mr. LIPINSKI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to an 
outstanding community in my district that is celebrating its 40th 
anniversary, Burr Ridge, IL.
  Burr Ridge was incorporated October 30, 1956, as a 1-mile square 
area. The village was originally called Harvester in honor of the 
International Harvester plant located nearby. The village steadily 
expanded and was renamed Burr Ridge in 1961 in honor of a stand of Burr 
Oak trees located on a small ridge in the community.
  Through wise planning and controlled growth, the village has combined 
light industrial areas with subdivisions of single family homes in all 
price ranges. From the original 300 residents, Burr Ridge has grown to 
nearly 9,000 inhabitants.
  Mr. Speaker, I salute the Village of Burr Ridge on 40 years of 
serving as a model community in suburban Chicago.
