Northbrook was once known as Shermerville when it was incorporated in 1901. Originally a farming community, Shermerville changed its name because of the negative reputation it received as having rowdy saloons. After the name change, and immediately following World War II, the community started to grow dramatically. Within 30 years, the population went from 3,000 residents to over 30,000 residents. Twenty years later, the village changed its name to what it is now, Northbrook. It is named after the West Fork of the North Branch of the Chicago River that runs through the village.
