Just a few hundred residents lived in the area now called Orland Park when the Wabash, St.
Louis and Pacific Railroad extended its track through the small community in 1879.
Because census tracts are based on population, they vary in size depending on the density of settlement.
In urban areas, they are small, and in rural areas they can cover an entire small town or even a few small towns in very rural areas.
Hispanic or Latino of any race were 6.03% of the population, including 5.0% of Mexican descent.
The top five non-African, non-Hispanic ancestries reported in Orland Hills as of the 2000 census were Irish (22.9%), German (21.9%), Polish (21.7%), Italian (13.4%) and Czech (3.8%).
There were 2,153 households out of which 53.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 65.9% were married couples living together, 12.4% had a female householder with no husband present, and 17.9% were non-families.
We will work with you and your employees to make this a smooth transition.
