Lake Zurich: A History

Once a summer retreat for wealthy Chicagoans, Lake Zurich today is a beloved suburban village with a cozy small-town feel!

Named for the lovely lake in its center, Lake Zurich is known for its welcoming community, great schools, and beautiful natural surroundings. The idyllic community was even named as one of the “Top Twenty-five Affordable Places to Live in the Country” by U.S. News and as one of the “Best Places to Raise Your Family” by Frommer’s.

Just 36 miles from Chicago’s Loop, commuters can get to the city with Metra trains in nearby Barrington and local highways.
