What is the major city in area code 779?
Rockford, city, seat (1836) of Winnebago county, northern Illinois, U.S. It lies on the Rock River, about 90 miles (145 km) northwest of Chicago. Rockford was founded by New Englanders in 1834 as separate settlements (commonly known as Kentville and Haightville, for the founders of each) on each side of the river and originally called Midway (halfway between Chicago and Galena); it was renamed in 1837 for the ford across the river. Waterpower supplied by a dam constructed in the mid-19th century led to the development of Rockford as a manufacturing centre in the middle of an agricultural area. The farm-machinery business began there in the early 1850s when John H. Manny developed a combined reaper and mower. The furniture industry began with an influx of Swedish carpenters, who arrived following the extension of the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad to the Rock River (1852). Camp Grant, a reception and medical centre during World Wars I and II, was converted into the Greater Rockford Airport.
