Their students attend nearby Mendota public schools. The village is home to one restaurant Countryside Bar and Grill. The town is also known for its curling club.

Triumph was so named when supporters of establishing a post office "triumphed" over those who opposed it.[1] The Triumph post office has been in operation since 1857.[2] The Chicago Northwestern Railroad established a depot in Triumph around 1900. It stood until roughly 1950.[3]
