Explore & Experience Cary

Welcome to the Village of Cary, Illinois. Originally called Cary Station thanks to the addition at the time of the Illinois & Wisconsin Railway line and train station, it was officially renamed Cary when it was incorporated in 1893.

Like much of the county, Cary can trace its roots back to farming. But perhaps the real boon was the addition of the train line and station, connecting Cary farmers to big cities like Chicago and a lucrative, of all things, pickle business, that helped Cary prosper.

The current train station, though updated over the years, still sits where the original station was constructed back in 1863.
