It was originally known as Fullersburg, named after Ben Fuller, an early settler. In 1958, due to efforts of Paul Butler, Oak Brook Illinois was incorporated as a village. Prior to incorporation, the name Oak Brook was used by local residents to distinguish their community from neighboring Hinsdale and Elmhurst, going back to the founding of the Oak Brook Civic Association almost two decades earlier.
The original boundaries of the village were smaller than present, but a large amount of land was annexed soon after the founding of the village, including the land that is now the site of the Oakbrook Center shopping mall. Oakbrook Center, a popular shopping center located due west of Chicago opened in 1962.
