Sam and Jack Hoffman purchased the land now known as Hoffman Estates in the year 1954. The Village of Hoffman Estates was incorporated on September 19, 1959. In 1958, the residents wanted to rename the area "Twinbrook;" However, the Homeowners' Association board of directors overruled the residents. The Northwest Tollway was opened in 1958. In the early 1980s, another attempt was made to change the name of the village to East Barrington, but this attempt also failed due to the residential vote.
