Bartlett, situated in Illinois, United States, is a village with a population of 41,105 as per the 2020 census. It is predominantly located in Cook and DuPage counties (zip codes 60103, 60133), with a small portion along the western border falling within Kane County. Bartlett is an integral part of the Chicago metropolitan area.

Historically, Bartlett served as a hunting and camping ground for various indigenous tribes, including the Cherokee, Miami, Potawatomi, and Ottawa Indians. Over time, the territory saw claims from the Northwest Territory, Virginia, Indiana, Spain, France, and England. However, it was ultimately owned by Luther Bartlett, after whom the town is named. Luther and Sophia Bartlett recognized the potential benefits of establishing a station stop for their community. In 1873, Luther Bartlett contributed financially and donated half of his 40-acre woodlot towards the construction of a train depot, thus cementing the town's namesake. Bartlett later gained prominence as a leading producer of pigs, serving as its primary export for many years. A petition for incorporation was submitted in Springfield on February 11, 1891, and the village was officially incorporated on June 21, 1892. Bartlett witnessed significant population growth during the 1980s.
