Named after British Prime Minister William Gladstone (1809-1898), Gladstone Park and its surrounding namesake neighborhood is primarily residential with commercial development along Milwaukee. Its brick housing stock continues to lure new residents. A Metra station is located along Northwest Highway, which parallels the Union Pacific railroad tracks. These tracks also spurred the development of light industry in the area. Numerous machine shops and small factories were constructed along Northwest Highway in the mid-20th Century, and some of these facilities are still in operation today.
