St. Leonard Catholic Church
Berwyn is a town in northeastern Illinois, a few miles from Lake Michigan. 

It was first established as "LaVergne" in 1856 by a land developer, who aspired to make his new town a wealthy, aristocratic community. However, the damp marshland proved to hold little attraction for the Illinois elite. A population boom occurred in the 1890's, after the developer's death.

Today, Berwyn is known for its church and run-down downtown area.
