Dunlap is located just north of Peoria with Illinois 91 running right through the center of the village. Dunlap is a small and charming community with less than a square mile of area and a population of approximately 1,400 residents. As the Peoria Metropolitan Area grows, more and more activity is happening in Dunlap and growth is expected to continue.
Dunlap gets its name from a man named Alva Dunlap who purchased 840 acres of land back in the 1800’s. 40 of those acres became the town of Dunlap where the Rock Island Railroad was given the right-of-way to go through his property. The town of Dunlap was officially established in 1871 and then became incorporated as a village in 1952. Throughout its history, Dunlap has maintained a tranquil and enjoyable living environment as a rural community while promoting population growth and business opportunities.
