Getting City Smart: CubeSmart Self-Storage Facility in Des Plaines, IL

This is one of a series of articles spotlighting our storage facilities and neighborhoods.

When French explorers and settlers first arrived in the 1600’s, which was then the Illinois Country of New France, they named the main waterway “La Riviere Des Plaines”. Translated, this means the River of the Plane Tree, referring to the fact that they felt the trees on the river resembled the European plane tree. This town is located in Cook County, has a population of 58,000, and shares a border with the Chicago O’Hare Airport!
