Description
Originally called Independence Grove, Libertyville assumed its present name when a post office was established in 1827. American Indians camped near the settlement while enjoying the mineral springs that dot the area. Wealthy Chicagoans later developed summer estates in the wooded hills and along the shores of the four lakes near the city limits.
The former home of the architect for whom it is named, David Adler Music and Arts Center, 1700 N. Milwaukee Ave., presents art exhibits and music recitals; phone (847) 367-0707.
Independence Grove Forest Preserve covers 1,100 acres and surrounds a lake reclaimed from a gravel quarry. This outdoor recreation area features 5.5 miles of trails designed for bicycling, hiking and inline skating. The marina offers boat rentals, fishing and swimming. A picnic pavilion and a visitor center also are available; phone (847) 968-3499.
