Buffalo Grove is a village located in the northern suburbs of Chicago, and in Cook and Lake counties in Illinois, United States. Buffalo Creek was named when bison were seen drinking from the creek by the Potawatomi, French & English, and when bison bones were found in the area. Bison also grazed and rested in the grove thus lending itself to the name of the village.
As of the 2010 census, the village population was 41,496. In July 2009, Buffalo Grove was listed at No. 65 on Money magazine's "best places to live" list. The village is home to two annual festivals, the Buffalo Grove Days held in September and an Arts Festival held in mid-July. Throughout the village, there are a number of various business parks. The village president is currently Jeffrey Braiman. Most of the village is located within the 10th Congressional District of Illinois, but the southern portion is represented in the 8th Congressional District.
