Frankfort is a village in Will County, United States. The population was 17,782 at the 2010 census, up from 10,391 in 2000. According to Forbes.com, in 2007 the village ranked as the 36th fastest growing suburb in the United States. The name "Frankfort" was taken from Frankfort Township as designated by the governing board of Will County, it was known as "Frankfort Station" after the opening of the Joliet & Northern Indiana Railroad through the township in 1855, though the official plat of the community dated March 1855 shows the name as "Frankfort". Property deed abstracts and railroad documents show that the name was always Frankfort. Local residents incorporated Frankfort as a village in 1879, it has some reference to the major German city of Frankfurt. First inhabited by Native Americans, including the Potawatomi and Sac and Fox tribes, Frankfort was used as a conduit between the Des Plaines and St. Joseph rivers; the area was part of the Virginia Territory before the French signed a treaty with Manitoqua, the Potawatomi chief, for land in the Prestwick area.
The first pioneers came to Frankfort in the early 1830s by means of the Des Plaines River from the southwest and by wagon from the east along the Sauk Trail, a roadway that still exists today. William Rice, the first non-native settler, made a permanent settlement in Frankfort in 1831. While the first pioneers, coming from the New England colonies, were of English and Scottish descent, German settlers made the village of Frankfort a reality. In the 1840s German settlers migrated from Germany to Frankfort, they had fled harsh conditions in their homeland by coming to America and proved to be industrious and experienced farmers as they soon bought most of the fertile farm land from the "Yankees", who were more inclined to provide services for local needs. Establishing both ownership and pride in the area, the German settlers implemented the first system of resident concern for local lands, maintained since. What is now known as Frankfort Township was part of the Hickory Creek Precinct. Will County was divided into ten precincts.
The county, in 1850, was changed to the township form of government. Frankfort Township was named by Frederick Cappel after his native city, Frankfurt am Germany. In 1855 the Joliet and Northern Indiana Railroad built a line through an area linking Joliet, with Lake Station, Indiana; the J&NI Railroad was leased to the Michigan Central Railroad, service was implemented in July 1855. Nelson D. Elwood, an officer of the rail line, Sherman Bowen, a Joliet attorney and real estate man, jointly platted a village of around 23 acres in March 1855 and named it Frankfort after the township, it was referred to as "Frankfort Station" because of the railroad depot located there. John McDonald became the first railroad agent in 1857. In 1879, the village of Frankfort was incorporated, elected John McDonald as the first Village President. Along with the establishment of the government, among the first undertakings of the newly formed administration was the institution of land use policies. Early plats that were recorded indicated a traditional grid pattern with residential uses surrounding the business district and railroad line and additional land provided for schools and public open spaces.

Jacob Frankfort was the first known Jew to come to Los Angeles. He immigrated from Poland in 1841, he would be joined by other Central European Jews. By 1855, there were 60 Jews living in Los Angeles. Frankfort arrived in Los Angeles as a member of the Rowland-Workman exploratory party; the party had come to the city from New Mexico. Jacob's position in the team was bolstered by skills of tailoring and ownership of a rifle. Frankfort was a wealthy man; this fact is reflected in Rafael Gallardo's declaration of bankruptcy, which states that Jacob Frankfort was owed $400 in 1845. Frankfort started his business with a tailoring and men's apparel store in the Bell's Row, an adobe building; when Mr. Mellus bought Bell's Row from Mr. Bell, it was Frankfort. Subsequently, Bell's Row was changed to Mellus' Row. Bell's Row was fantastically located: All the traffic coming in from the L. A. River arrived at the corner of Aliso & Los Angeles Streets, where the Bell's Row sat. "L. A. Scene / The City Then and Now".
