Rockford, the County Seat of Winnebago County, Illinois, is a city located on the banks of the Rock River. Rockford was named Rockford because it was such an excellent ford found just right across the Rock River. It was also called “The Forest City” because the city was well known throughout the state for its piles of beautiful elm trees. Although these elm trees were wiped out during the 1950’s, Rockford still had piles of big trees.

Even before the 20th century, Rockford was well known for the manufacturing industry. The industry revolved around different important machine tools, giving the country high rate of income from the many important and remarkable machinery inventions, such as the airbrush, electric garage door opener, Nelson knitting machine, electric brake, electronic dart board, and dollar bill changer.

Rockford has been one of the homes of the many companies manufacturing and producing toys that were sold and traded all around the world.

The Chrysler began its production of the prestigious cars in Rockford in the year 1965.

Rockford in the present era started to become the worst city due to the increase in the unemployment rate and income tax. Most of the residents failed to continue and finish college, making their lives slowly going down.

There are many redevelopments already done to address the problems, and there is also visible success. The government continues to renovate the city through the different rises of the new commercial and residential areas within the city.
