Best Answer

My family moved to Portage Park in 1949. I was told that the park got its name because the Indians "portaged" their canoes through this area. I read in a book about St. Pascal's church that homes were built in the area because people who worked at "Dunning" (the farmer's name who donated the land) needed housing. Portage Park homes were built in the 19 teens and 1920's.The Watson family who lived on Waveland had the first telephone in the area.

I hope this information helps.
