Because of You and Your Support,

We’ve Got a lot to be Thankful for.

15

15 Years of Service

Back in December, 1991, a few local people got together with one thought in mind--to start a good old fashioned community

bank to serve the residents of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff--the kind of bank most of us remember from when we were

younger. A bank you really enjoyed going to--where everyone knew you and your family. A bank that took an interest in

the people of the community, and did whatever they could to meet your needs. We raised six million dollars from local folks

to open your bank and Lake Forest Bank & Trust was born. Over the past 15 years, we’ve grown to 140 million dollars in

capital and equity with assets over 1.4 billion dollars! Wow! Your idea of community banking worked. Just ask us to show

you our financial statements.

We’re proud to show you our strength in numbers. We’re now the 25 th

largest bank1 and the 11 th

best performing bank2 in the Chicagoland area.

You’ve made us number one when it comes to the market share our bank

holds in town. We continue to grow, while most of our competitors are

losing their share.

Our employees are the best and brightest bankers around--bar none.

Many have been with us since the day we opened our doors. We’ve

grown over the past 15 years while continuing to serve you well and

maintain our hometown service. All of our banking decisions are made

right here--not far away in some distant city. So, when you need a loan,

your local bankers make the approval here in town. Since we don’t

have the big overhead of big banks, our rates are extremely competitive.

And, our products are especially designed to meet the needs of our

customers.

We will continue to provide service as a true hometown bank that cares about every member of your family. From our Jr.

Saver Account and programs for young children to our PlatinumPreferred ® Checking and Platinum Adventures ® Club for

Seniors, we’re here every step of the way. And, since we are the community bank in town, we are involved and support

locally sponsored events and much more.

To our loyal customers, we say thank you. If you haven’t already joined our banking family, we invite you to come on in.

You’ll see what a difference community banking can make for you and the difference it has made in the neighborhood.

LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

Abou t This Gu i d e...

Perched on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, the

picturesque communities of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff

are outstanding places to live and work, offering a tranquil

lifestyle and numerous amenities for both residents and visitors

alike.

As one of the many services provided by the Chamber of

Commerce, we are pleased to offer this handy reference

book, filled with useful information about civic and social

amenities to be found in the two communities we serve. In

addition, you will find a business directory that lists, both

alphabetically and categorically, Chamber members who

represent the excellent retail establishments and service

providers in our area.

We are justifiably proud of the two communities represented

here, and we hope that you will keep this guide and find it to be

a useful reference. We also hope that you will patronize our

members, businesses whose membership in the Chamber

reflects their strong commitment to serving both our community

and you, its residents.

Presid ent’s Letter

Visit our website at www.LakeForestOnline.com

It has been an honor to serve

the members of the Lake

Forest/Lake Bluff Chamber of

Commerce for the past three

years as a Director. It is now an

even greater honor to represent

the Chamber as its president.

Our local businesses play a

critical role in the continued health and vitality of our

communities. For those of us who work and live in

Lake Forest or Lake Bluff, the importance of fostering

cooperation between our residents, businesses

and municipalities cannot be overstated. Through

cooperative efforts, our business communities have

the opportunity to become all that they can.

The Chamber of Commerce has been serving our

businesses for 53 years by encouraging that cooperation.

A recent example is our “Shop Local First”

campaign, which was specifically designed to give

our retailers the competitive edge. It has been

exciting to watch the growth of this program and

I'm excited to say that it is now being used as an

example to other Chicago area chambers of commerce.

As president, I will try to continue the forward thinking

that has helped our members succeed in the past.

Join us in supporting our local businesses and making

sure that Lake Forest and Lake Bluff remain two of

the North Shore's premier communities.

To help, all of us at the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff

Chamber of Commerce are pleased to present the

2007 Community Guide. The guide highlights our

members and some unique goods and services

available locally. May this Community Guide provide

you with the information and resources you need to

help keep our area thriving for years to come.

Very truly yours,

David M. Lutrey,

President

THE CITY OF LAKE FOREST


AREA HISTORY

28

L a ke Blu ff

The last Indian treaty made in Illinois was completed in

1833. This treaty with the Potawatomi tribe gave the

Indians two years to move out and opened the northeast

section of the state for settlement. John and Catherine

Cloes, the first to claim land within the area now known as

Lake Bluff, arrived in 1836 with their son Henry. They laid

claim to 100 acres of land fronting on the lake and going

west to the Green Bay Trail.

In 1849, John Cloes and two neighbors left to seek their fortune

in the California gold rush. He died in Sacramento

leaving his wife, Catherine, to raise their seven children and

manage the homestead. In 1837, William and Mary Dwyer

claimed the land just north of the present-day Central School.

They opened and operated a stage coach stop and tavern

along the Green Bay Trail. Some of the other early settlers

were Henry and Angeline Ostrander, James Cole and

William Whitnell.

Charles Helming stands in

front of his Meat Market and

Grocery in 1902. This building,

now known as the Village Market,

is the oldest commercial building

in Lake Bluff and still stands on

the northwest corner of Walnut

and Scranton Avenues.

LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

In 1855, the first railroad

through Lake County was

completed, running from

Chicago through Waukegan,

to the county line. Henry

Ostrander owned the land

where the depot was to be

placed, and he agreed to

donate the site if the depot

were called “Rockland.”

Therefore this area, known

previously as the Dwyer

Settlement and Oak Hill,

became Rockland, the only

stop between Highland Park

and Waukegan. Rockland had

In 1875, a group of Methodist ministers led by Solomon

Thatcher of River Forest purchased 100 acres of lake-front

property from Ben Cloes, the youngest son of the first settlers.

The Lake Bluff Camp Meeting Association was formed and the

little settlement of Rockland was renamed “Lake Bluff.”

The Association planned a resort similar to the Chautauqua

movement in the east, one that would provide not only religious

activities but also social, cultural, educational and recreational

programs.

From the beginning, the Camp Meeting was successful at

bringing in well-known personalities of the time, such as

Francis Willard and Mrs. Rutherford B. Hayes. Summer visitors

were attracted to Lake Bluff to enjoy the beach and ravines and

participate in the Camp Meeting activities. A 10-acre lake in the

center of town, Artesian Lake, provided additional recreational

opportunities. Land was divided into 25-foot lots on which a

cottage “could be erected within 20 days of purchase for

$250.”

The first hotel, the Bluff Lodge, was opened in 1876. By

the mid-1880s there were more than 30 hotels and boarding

houses, plus a large tabernacle with seating for more

than 2,000 people.

LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

Scranton Avenue, Lake Bluff's business district, circa 1940.

In 1895, Lake Bluff ensured its future as a suburb and incorporated

as a Village. Charles Trusdell, the first village president,

built his home at 115 E. Center Ave. The East School opened

in September 1895. In 1904, the brick railroad

station was erected, and in 1905 the present

Village Hall was built.

During the First World War, Lake Bluff was

proclaimed the “most patriotic small town in

America” for the efforts of the residents in

supporting the Red Cross and purchasing an

ambulance to send to France.

In the 1920s, Lake Bluff made great plans to join

the other North Shore suburbs in the race to

attract new homes and growing families. New

brick stores were added in the business block, and

a large addition to East School was constructed.

However, 1929 brought the Great Depression,

and the plans for expansion never materialized.

Growth did come in the “Baby Boom” era after the Second

World War. New subdivisions opened along Green Bay

Road, and three new schools were built by the end of the

1960s. Now a full-fledged suburb, Lake Bluff has never

relinquished its small-town flavor and friendly spirit.

The south side of Scranton Avenue east of Center circa 1925. The building

L a ke F orest

Throughout its history Lake Forest has been referred to

as “a special place,” and most residents would agree

with that designation. Yet when asked exactly what

that means, there would probably be as many answers as

there are residents. What is clear, however, is that almost

from the beginning of its history, the term has been appropriate

for Lake Forest.

The Natural Environment

The magnificent shoreline of Lake Michigan forms the eastern

boundary of Lake Forest. Its steep bluffs rise 75 to 100 feet

above the level of the lake and are cut with deep ravines,

originally covered in

dense oak and hickory

forest. In the mid-

1850s, a small group of

Presbyterian ministers

was overwhelmed by

the natural beauty of

the area while searching

for a location for a new

J.E. Fitzgerald Plumbing and

Heating was located at the southwest

corner of Deerpath and Bank Lane.

The 1917 advertisement indicated

he had "installed the plumbing and

heating in the majority of Lake

Forest homes- why not yours?"

This estate-era essential was the

original basis for a family long identified

with service to the community.

LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

university. On a later

trip, as they were

trekking towards the

lake from the newly

completed railroad,

they searched for a

suitable name for

their new educational

community.

Simplicity reigned.

The Reverend Slocum,

who was on the expedition and had experience in starting

such institutions, asked what lay before them. They

answered: “A lake.” And what stood behind them: ”A forest.”

The final question to them was, “Why not call it Lake

Forest?” Their answer was, “Amen.”

Their next step was to

begin purchasing the

land in the area. Most of

the ownership of the

property was held by

earlier settlers and a few

railroad construction

workers. Two decades

before the Presbyterians

decided that the lakefront

area would be the

home of a town and

university, pioneer families

had been attracted

to the inexpensive land

adjacent to the Green

Bay Military Road. In the

1830s, the famous

in the first floor of the Young

Men’s Club building. The

Young Men’s Club was organized

in 1904 to foster athletics. T

The building, which later housed

the City’s recreation department,

was also built concurrently

with Market Square.

Everett Garage, owned by the Loeffer brothers (Ed, Adolph

and Walter), operated at 1045 South Waukegan Road for 43

years. The garage was started in 1921 when Model T’s and

four-cylinder Chevys were the latest things on wheels and a

smithy still shoed horses in the back. Pasquesi Home and

Gardens is in the building today. This area of west Lake

Forest, settled in 1835, was known as Meehan’s

Settlement, Corduroy and Everett before annexation. The

first telegraph line between Chicago and Milwaukee ran

along Telegraph Road (now Waukegan Road.)

Green Bay Road was only a “blazed trail” connecting the

settlements of Chicago, Milwaukee and Green Bay. It

followed the path of an earlier Indian trail and is thought to

be on or near the present-day Waukegan Road. The grass

lands of the Skokie River area were another significant feature

of the terrain which was at the junction point of the forest

and the great prairie to the west. Here, the Potawatomies,

the last native Americans in the region, roamed in search of

game and lived in portable wigwams until the Indian

Treaties removed them to west of the Mississippi. The rich

midwest farmlands then became open for settlement.

2007 Chamber of Commerce Community Guide


LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

In 1835, a year before

the land was legally

opened, Michael Meehan

built his homestead on

Old Telegraph Road. A

cluster of farms and

homes grew up around

it and became known

in its early days as

Meehan's Settlement

or Corduroy (perhaps

due to the construction

of the log roads, which

had ridges and resembled

the fabric) and

later as Everett.

A year later, Michael

Yore arrived from

Ireland and settled

nearby. He was one of

the few farmers to own

horses and often helped

his new neighbors clear their land. In addition, his home

was spacious enough to become a stagecoach stop for

travelers. Soon there was enough of a community to found

a Roman Catholic congregation, and in 1840 Yore donated

land along Telegraph Road for a cemetery. In 1844, St.

Michael’s, one of the earliest Catholic churches in Illinois,

was built on the west side of Waukegan Road. Postal service

began to the community in 1846, and the first telegraph

line between Chicago and Milwaukee followed the route of

today’s Telegraph Road in 1847.

The building at 179 East Deerpath has housed several prominent

local businesses. First among them was the livery owned by

Samuel Dent, an escaped slave who joined the Union Army

during the Civil War. Herman Jahnke Florist later occupied the

building. It now houses Country House Antiques.

In the meantime, new families began to move into the area

east of the Green Bay Road and closer to the lake. The first

reported Protestant service was held in the home of

William Atteridge, near the present corner of Deerpath and

In 1895, the City granted rights to erect a telephone

system and John Chapman arrived representing the

Chicago Telephone Company. A direct line to Chicago

was established the following year. Pictured here is

East Deerpath.

Green Bay Road in 1850. The

properties were included in

the newly formed Shields

Township and would be part of

the original plat of Lake Forest

when completed in 1857. The

property of their neighbors to

the west would not become

part of Lake Forest until 1926

with annexation of nine square

miles, including the Everett

area.

The Intellectual Climate

The original plan of the

Presbyterians to name the

new university after a Mr.

Gibson from Cincinnati was

abandoned when it was

learned that his fortune had

been made by distilling

whiskey. However, another

benefactor was found in Sylvester Lind of Chicago, who

made the same offer of $100,000 on the condition that it be

matched by the Presbyterian community of Chicago. In

order to purchase the land, a subscription book was made,

Store until 1968. The Cohns built

store operation.

and $59,000 was collected from 94 subscribers. In 1856,

the Lake Forest Association was established to purchase the

land and sponsor the contemplated educational institutions.

The Association was charged with purchasing the necessary

acreage, not to exceed the purchasing power of the

capital stock for three institutions of learning: a university, a

preparatory academy for young men and a female seminary.

Shares were sold in the Lake Forest Association, and

enough money was collected to purchase the required

lands. The state of Illinois chartered Lind University in

1857, and the Association decided to retain the services of

a landscape architect to design the future city of Lake

Forest.

Although there has been controversy over the years as to

the young designer’s first name, his legacy to the

community is unquestioned. The Hotchkiss plan, completed

in 1857, was in the “park” tradition, following the natural

curves of the ravines resulting in beautiful winding streets

and spacious residential lots. Every alternate lot was allocated

for Lind University so that the proceeds from its sale

The Deerpath Theatre opened in 1928 under the

management of Joseph Emma. His daughter, Rosemary,

became a well-known comedy and television actress

under the name of Joan Taylor. Designed by architect

Stanley Anderson, the English-traditional interior, shown

here in 1938, was tastefully decorated with antiques and

paintings. Joseph Emma’s wife operated a dance studio

in the present Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Historical Society

Theatre.

would help finance the institution. The entire area was then

surveyed, plotted and recorded, so that lots could be sold

quickly. Shortly afterward, the Association opened the

town’s first public building, the Lake Forest Hotel. This was

followed by the formation of the First Presbyterian Church

and the construction of Lake Forest Academy in 1859. The

sister institution to the Academy opened in 1859 and was

known as Dickinson Seminary for Young Ladies, until Ferry

Hall was established in 1865.

Unfortunately, just as Lind University received its charter,

Sylvester Lind lost so much of his fortune that he was

unable to meet his financial obligations to the Association,

and his dream of founding a theological seminary did not

materialize. However, Lind remained an active participant

in the affairs of the community. In a meeting at his home

in 1859, a favorable discussion was held about incorporating

as a city. This was achieved by a special act of the state

legislature in 1861 and Lake Forest was divided into three

wards. Sylvester Lind would serve as mayor of the new

city for two separate terms during its first two decades.

An Elegant Suburb

The beautiful natural setting of Lake Forest ensured its

success from the beginning. As early as 1869, the little city

was described as being “the most exclusive and

aristocratic of all the Chicago’s suburbs.” The arrival of the

Farwell brothers attracted more notoriety for the young

community. Mr. John V. Farwell’s house was one of the

most expensive in Lake Forest, and he quickly became its

most famous resident. He and his brother, Charles, found

many common interests with the other citizens; raising

young families, education, services at the Presbyterian

Church and proximity to their commercial and charitable

pursuits in Chicago. They also invested in prize livestock,

which left another distinguishing mark on the

community—the development of country estates—a trend

begun in the early 1890s.

2007 Chamber of Commerce Community Guide

Texaco dealer Herman Johnson

was featured in the company

magazine in 1948 as an exemplary

dealer. He was recognized for

his high level of service and facility

maintenance. The multitude of his

services included stocking a line

of bait and tackle for his customers.

Pictured here are Herman

Johnson and his bookkeeper

Lucille Sutton, ca. 1945. The

Texaco dealership was located

at the northwest corner of Bank

Lane and Illinois.

Lake Forest was unique in determining before the Civil

War that, due to new estate resident D. R. Holt's insistence,

there were to be no businesses east of the railroad

tracks. The few little businesses already up on what would

be McKinley had to move across the tracks to Western

Avenue. The first store owned by pioneer merchant

James Anderson was no exception. Shown here in the

1890s is Anderson’s second store at the northwest corner

of Deerpath and Western. James Anderson is pictured to

the left of his son who stands in the doorway.


LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

Some of the better-known families and their estates were

the following: Cyrus H. McCormick, Jr.— Walden; Louis F.

Swift—Westleigh; J. Ogden Armour— Mellody Farm. No

discussion of the upper-class during this time period would

be complete without the mention of its country

club—Onwentsia. Of all the country clubs along the North

Shore, Onwentsia held the most esteemed position due

more to the social prominence of its members than its age

or facilities. The club was the home to golf championships,

polo matches, horse shows, steeplechases and hunts—all

attracting national interest.

However, Lake Forest was not a single class

community. Distinctions existed, but for the most part

residents lived in an atmosphere of tolerance and

sensitivity. Students at the various schools were

welcomed, and local merchants were appreciated for the

services that they provided. When it became necessary for

a series of internal improvements to the city, most were

accomplished without complications. In 1896 the first telephone

system was installed, the first police officer was

appointed and electricity was brought to Lake Forest. The

City Hall was built two years later and contained the

administrative offices, plus the fire and police departments

and library. The original tower contained a bell to announce

all fires, which it continued to do until Armistice Day in

1918. It was rung so hard in celebration that it broke and

had to be replaced with a siren. The siren was and is tested

everyday at noon.

A Cherished Landmark

As the city grew, so did the dissatisfaction with the unsightly

appearance of the downtown. Two friends, Arthur T. Aldis

and Howard Van Doren Shaw, came up with a daring

idea—buy a large chunk of downtown, demolish it, and

start over. Shaw, an architect, would design the buildings

and Aldis, a real estate manager, would attend to the business

details. The project was conceived in 1912 and the

plans drawn in 1915. With the ground broken in September

and construction completed by the following April, the

result was Market Square. Aldis looked to an earlier model

in the community when he formed an association to raise

money by subscription. The trustees named the organization

The Lake Forest Improvement Plan, which retained ownership

of the Square from its inception, until it was sold to

Broadacre Management in 1984.

When listed on the National Register of Historic Places in

1979, Market Square was referred to as America’s first

planned shopping center, but its real significance is that it is

emblematic of Lake Forest. It is the first and last view of

the community from the train; its fine architecture makes

people feel gratified, visually and emotionally. Shaw did not

choose one style for his Square, but a mixture of traditional

styles with his own touch, creating an alluring vista with

careful and witty attention to detail. A public/

private partnership to renovate both the infrastructure and

landscape of Market Square was recently completed—yet

another example of the spirit of Lake Forest, which makes

it such a special place.

For more information about the history of the

community, please contact the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff

Historical Society at 234-5253.

In 1912, a decision was made to redevelop the area along Western Avenue (shown here in 1907 postcard) by the estateowners'

Lake Forest Improvement Trust, along with gifted local developer John Griffith. Completed by 1917, Market

Square is the first car-focused City Beautiful town center to be a commercial success.

FEDERAL & STATE OFFICIALS


TOWNSHIP GOVERNMENT

36

Atownship is a political and geographical subdivision of

a county and state. It is a municipal corporate body

that can own property, sue and be sued,

borrow money and levy taxes in accordance with state

statutes. A township’s elected officials may act for the

electorate in the township's name when conducting business.

Lake County is divided into 18 townships. Generally, there

are eight officers in each township, elected for terms of four

years: Supervisor, Clerk, Assessor, Highway Commissioner

and four trustees. All townships are required to provide

welfare assistance and property assessment. Townships

also may establish libraries, medical clinics, museums,

community buildings,recreation districts, mental health

facilities, cemeteries and youth committees.

Township government originated in the mid-1600s. Illinois

in 1787 was included in the Northwest Territory in which

Congress designated counties and townships in a broad

area of mostly unsettled land. The second Illinois

Constitution, adopted in 1848, gave counties the option to

include townships in their governmental structure.

Lake County was established east of the Fox River on

March 1, 1839. County offices were opened April, 1841 at

Little Fort (Waukegan). Most Illinois counties, including Lake,

chose the township system in a general election in 1849.

How can we help you make

better use of your day?

We provide lifestyle management services

tasks that you don’t have time for, thereby

giving you more quality time with your

family and friends, or just extra time to relax.

Today’s work force has less time for their

personal lives, because they are spending so

much extra time working and commuting.

Gorton Community Center is the "community house" of

Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. Founded in 1972 in the

former Gorton School, Gorton is a lively place that

offers programs, classes, and special events for all ages.

Over 180,000 visitors a year take advantage of Gorton’s

programs and facilities. The Gorton Children's Drop-In

Center serves over 300 families and over 400 children.

Gorton is where kids can become chess "wizards" or see

a traveling professional theatre troupe. They can learn

creative writing skills, attend a dance in the Grotto, learn a

foreign language, become a circus clown, or take yoga, art,

or cooking classes.

For adults, there are musical and theatrical productions and

classes in art appreciation, fly fishing, photography, bridge,

antiquing, sewing, home improvement workshops, yoga,

and on a myriad of other topics. Gorton is where you can

attend a play, an opera, a symphony or a jazz concert, an

antiques show, a business or club meeting, or a wedding

reception.

Over 100 other not-for-profit groups representing broad

community interests meet or have offices at Gorton, including

CenterStage Community Theatre, Deer Path Art League,

Gorton Community Center provides local residents and

community groups with a wide variety of programs and facilities

made possible by the generosity of the community itself. It is one

of only three privately-funded community houses in Illinois.

LEAD, Mothers’ Trust, Youth Choral Theatre, North Suburban

Symphony, Volunteer Center of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff,

Preservation Foundation, AA, Al-Anon, Great Lakes Adaptive

Sports Association, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts...and more.

Residents, clubs, and businesses may rent any one of eleven

the Annual Fund Drive, the Friends of Gorton Benefit, and

the Parents Board Auction. No property tax support funds

Gorton’s operations. Gorton's Program Book is mailed to all

660 N. Westmoreland Road

Lake Forest, IL 60085

(847) 234-5600

www.lakeforesthospital.com

Lake Forest Hospital (LFH) - is a fully licensed and

accredited 215-bed community hospital situated on a

160-acre wooded campus offering a complete range of

services. The medical staff includes more than 600 board-certified

physicians and a skilled nursing staff to serve the patient's

needs. Founded in 1899 as the Alice Home, LFH grew into

a not-for-profit community hospital and continues to enjoy

strong community support. LFH is governed by a board of

directors comprised of members representing both the

community and the medical staff.

The Lake Forest Hospital Foundation mission spans beyond

the traditional full range of health-care services to incorporate

a holistic approach through Lake Forest Hospital, Lake

Forest and Lindenhurst Health & Fitness Centers,

Dearhaven Child Care and Learning Center, Westmoreland

Nursing Center and the Women's Auxiliary of Lake Forest

Hospital.

Key LFH services include its emergency department

(a Level II Trauma Center), women's health (including digital

mammography) and cancer care, including Intensity

Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), a groundbreaking

cancer treatment that allows the delivery of more cancerfighting

energy at the tumors while minimizing radiation to

healthy tissue.

A PET/CT system subsequently installed in 2004 provides

physicians with more sensitivity, speed, resolution, and

diagnostic confidence when treating cancer patients. The

former radiation oncology department is now known as the

Center for Advanced Radiation Medicine, to better reflect

the level of treatment that cancer patients receive there.

Women's health services were consolidated under one roof

when Lake Forest Hospital opened a major new addition in

2004. The Hunter Family Center for Women's Health is a

$22 million women's wellness center featuring a breast

care center, Waud Family Maternity Services, community

education rooms and physicians' offices. The center features

the Posy Krehbiel Prevention & Wellness Center, which

captures the newest research and gathers all the right

specialists to help any woman design a personal, sustainable

plan for optimal well being.

Children's health has always been a focus of Lake Forest

Hospital. As a continuation of this, pediatric patients and

their families can take advantage of a partnership between

Lake Forest Hospital and Children's Memorial Hospital.

A pediatric hospitalist team, comprised of four physicians

from Children's, is on staff at LFH at all times to provide

care for children admitted to the newborn nursery, emergency

room, inpatient unit and elsewhere in the hospital.

LAKE FOREST LAKE BLUFF

Lake Forest Hospital participates in major managed care

programs serving Lake County giving patients the highest

quality health care at an affordable cost. For more information

about our physicians, please call the hospital's

Physician Referral Service at (847) 535-6171.

The present building, designed as a library, was given to the

city by the late Mrs. Charles H. Schweppe and the late Mrs.

Stanley Keith, in memory of Mrs. Keith’s first husband,

Kersey Coates Reed. It was dedicated on June 7, 1931.

In 1978, three new wings were officially dedicated. Monies

for a $1.1 million addition were underwritten by gifts from

the community and a substantial donation from the

Reed family. A three-level book stack renovation was

completed in 1990. In 1992, the Children’s Department was

refurbished; a mural by Thomas Melvin was commissioned by

the Friends of Lake Forest Library for the children’s foyer.

In 1996, the Friends Reading Room was re-furnished,

and the reference rooms renovated. A local-area network with

Internet and dial-in access was installed in the reference

and children’s sections. Also in 1996, a sculpture by Michael

Croydon was commissioned by the Deer Path Art League for

the Library lawn. In 2001, an exterior courtyard was renovated

as an indoor children’s program/activity room. 2003 saw

the remodeling of the business resource room. The fine

arts room was remodeled in 2005; the local-area network

was upgraded in 2006 with wireless Internet access added.

The Library offers full service for children and adults, including

online services and programming, from pre-school storytimes

to Great Books discussions. Paperback exchanges are

available at both train stations and at Forest Park Beach

(Memorial Day/Labor Day). The Library is wheelchair-accessible.

Shop Local First!

Good sense for you…

Good cents for our economy

With all the wonderful stores in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff, why go elsewhere to

shop? We're about personal attention, a focus on customer service, the pleasure

of shopping alongside friends and neighbors, and keeping local dollars within our

local economy-shop here and we all win!

Why does it make good “cents”? Several recent economic studies have supported

the fact that local businesses reinvest far more money in their local economies

than large chain stores, not only in sales tax dollars but also in community sponsorships,

involvement and support. Our local businesses routinely offer support

for fundraisers and projects benefiting our schools, churches, civic and social

groups, and for that we all benefit.

The perfect gift…Chamber gift certificates!

What better present for any occasion than a Chamber

gift certificate, redeemable at the wonderful shops and

businesses throughout LF & LB?

They may be purchased at the Chamber office in any

denomination. Give us a call and we'll have them ready

for you!
