Shorewood is a village in Troy Township, Will County, Illinois, United States. The village is approximately 39 miles southwest of Chicago's Loop.
Shorewood began as a small fishing and resort community. Albert H. Bruning purchased farmland from Richard and Anna Meyer in 1926. He subdivided the land and sold small lots along the DuPage River for summer cottages. Joliet and Chicago residents used the cottages as weekend retreats. Hammel Woods and the DuPage River provided beautiful and popular sites for fishing, swimming and picnics. The Village of Shorewood was previously known as Troy up until November 27, 1957 when the town was officially incorporated. In recent times, Shorewood has grown from its original cottage town beginnings to a developed suburb.
Shorewood has one local library, Shorewood-Troy Public Library.
