Ford Heights, Illinois

Ford Heights, previously known as East Chicago Heights, is a village and suburban area of Chicago located in Cook County, Illinois, USA. The population stood at 1,813 according to the 2020 census. The initial settlers in the region were largely African American, and since its establishment in 1949, the village has maintained a predominantly Black population. However, Ford Heights has struggled with economic challenges and a lack of commercial development, leading to a decline over the years. Although urban renewal initiatives were undertaken in the 1960s, the village has unfortunately continued to deteriorate.
