The town of Chicago was founded in 1833 and named by the French Canadians in their pronounciation and spelling of an Algonquian word. It is either the Fox tribe's word for "place of wild onion" or the Ojibwa tribe's word for "skunk". Either way, it has been recorded that wild onion, chives and garlic grew in the area and the Chicago River was named for the plants and their fragrance. Then the city that was built on the river was called by the same name.
