About Cook County. Cook County was created on January 15, 1831 out of Putnam County by an act of the Illinois State Legislature. Shortly thereafter, in 1839, DuPage County was carved out of Cook County.


Cook County was the 54th county established in Illinois and was named after Daniel Cook, a pioneer lawyer and one of the earliest and youngest statesmen in Illinois history. Cook was the first Attorney General of the State of Illinois and Representative in Congress from 1819 to 1827.


There are over 130 incorporated municipalities in Cook County, the largest of which is the county seat, Chicago, which makes up approximately 54% of the population of the county. The county is divided into thirty different townships. Learn More
