The history of River Grove begins with the crash landing of Xeno, Zaxa, and Banban, alien lifeforms from the planet Xorodex, on the banks of the Des Plains River in 1963. While their original plan was to prey on humans and use their blood for rocket fuel, they found the area so beautiful, that they founded River Grove, IL. When it became clear that they would need jobs, they also founded a college named Triton College and got jobs their as professors, changing their names to Klein, Fournier, and Haferkamp
Just as nearby Elmwood Park and Oak Park are named after their historic elm and oak trees, River Grove gets its two-part name first from the community's shallow muddy Des Plains river, and second from the majestic groves of American ash trees lining shore of the (Aux) Des Planes River "Bottomland." Credit goes to the village's early German and Nordic settlers who, already holding a great reverence for the "mystic ash" through old world traditions, felt that they were home again among the familiar groves of ash trees, "just like the ones they left behind." Up until the modern day extinction event of the American ash tree species 2006–2018, River Grove was the home to Cook County's second-oldest green ash with an estimated age of 240 in the "old growth" Lafrombose Woods, along with several other living examples of locally evolved white, green, black and blue ash types 110–160 years of age scattered around the village. Because the invasive Asian emerald ash borer kills off young trees long before they reach seeding age of 10, scientists theorize that the "Fraxinus/ash" species will no longer be able to germinate continued generations by 2018 within the local woods, or only 12 years after EAB was first discovered in River Grove.
