Mills Realty South Holland


1255 PRINCE DRIVE is nestled in the quiet town of SOUTH HOLLAND Illinois. When looking at this home for sale I decided to conduct a little research on the area. South Holland is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States, within Thornton Township. The population is at about XXXXX at the 2010 census.

South Holland is an anomaly in Chicago Southland because of its laws. On 162nd Street or South Park Avenue. South Holland is a “dry” municipality; that is, no alcohol is sold anywhere South Hollands limits. Additionally, the sale or rental of pornographic material is prohibited in South Holland. The village’s franchise agreements with cable television providers restrict adult-oriented programming.

South Holland, IL offers a bevy of can’t-miss things to do, from attending special events to getting involved in the arts and learning about local history; to dining at independent restaurants and staying active at area parks.

South Holland is known as one of the towns where African Americans move to get away from the fast pace hustle and bustle of the big city of Chicago. It is a town where successful African Americans move to position their family and children in a peaceful, quiet, and relaxed atmosphere. Most of the citizens do not work in South Holland. They work in the City of Chicago and commute to work daily or are retired

South Holland has many amenities to have a population of just 22,082 people and 7,365 households. A list of the majority of the amenities.

The town of South Holland has a good school district that produces a lot of professional sports athletes. The school district received a B with the National Libibility Score System.


Education south Holland a good place to live

South Holland School District 151 is an elementary school district in South Holland, a Chicago suburb located in southern Cook County, Illinois. It is composed of four schools; three elementary schools and one junior high school. Students begin their education in the district at Taft School; pre-kindergarteners, kindergarteners, and first graders are educated here under the supervision of Principal Anthony Palomo. Students then proceed to Eisenhower School, where they will remain until third grade; the school’s principal is Dr. Rhonda Towner. The third and final elementary school in the district educates fourth and fifth graders, and is called Madison School; Madison’s principal is Regina Bridges. Graduates of Madison move on to Coolidge Middle School, where they will remain until graduating from the eighth grade. The principal of the district’s middle school is Patricia Payne.


South Holland is a nice town to live for anyone about to whine down from the big city, a day of work or even retirement. The town has a good education system and a good sports program for those with children who have dreams to become an athlete. It is one of those towns that some people move to for the purpose of getting away from the racism in different parts of the nation.The town is highly populated with a majority of African American professionals, retirees, and families at a rate of 77.2%. With the 2nd biggest populations being Caucasian at 16.9% and the 3rd biggest population being Latino at 4.7%.  The town has many things positive to do and bad things to do which teens are known to get into are rare. Crime against another is always a crime between two people who know each other.  Over all, it is a good town to live in. now I see why most of my family members on the Winfrey side of the family has decided to move there and some members have been living there for over 30 years now. Hay! Maybe I might move there some day. Only time can tell.
