Welcome to the Official New Lenox Township Clerk Website
|New Lenox Township was established when Will County was created in 1852 with the building of the Rock Island Railroad between Chicago and Rock Island, Illinois. The Township was named after Lenox, New York.|
|The French and Indian Wars (1754-1763), which were fought between the French and the British, shifted nominal control of the area from the French to the British, who passed control to the young United States in 1783. The Illinois Territory was carved out of the 1787 Northwest Territory in 1805 and Illinois statehood was granted in 1818. |
|Settlement in Illinois was nearly all in the southern third of the state along the Ohio, Wabash, Mississippi and Sangamon Rivers. New Lenox area permanent settlement came more than 10 years after statehood. |
