The village has a population of approximately 48,867 and is located just 22 miles west of the City of Chicago. Founded in 1882 by Pierce Downer, a religious evangelist from Wampsville, New York, original settlers were mostly migrants from the Northeastern United States and Northern Europe. Several major corporations call the village home including Advocate Health Care, Dover Corporation, Pepperidge Farm, Devry, and Sandford among others.

Downers Grove borders the communities of Oak Brook, Westmont, Darien, Lombard, Woodridge and Lisle and is the home of the Historic and Incredibly Beautiful Oak Hill and Oak Crest Cemeteries. Oak Hill and Oak Crest are technically one cemetery, separated by a fence. Early residents founded Oak Hill in anticipation of limited space at the Downers Grove Cemetery near downtown. The relatively newer Oak Crest Cemetery was founded later. Since its inception, a private cemetery association handled the cemetery’s appearance and records. The last members of this association to do so were a couple named Fred and May Marvin.
