About Gurnee, Illinois
One of the cities in which our lawyers live and work is Gurnee, Illinois. Gurnee is located within Lake County and is a popular destination for tourists in the Chicago-metropolitan area. In fact, annually, the city welcomes about 26 million visitors! This is in large part due to two of its main attractions: Gurnee Mills and Six Flags Great America.
The first community house, which served as the site of the Gurnee Grade School, was finished in 1836, and it was one of the city’s first landmarks. A few years later, a floating log bridge was constructed. Soon afterward, a permanent bridge was built, and roads were constructed, leading to a greater feeling of permanence for the city, as well as enhanced accessibility.
While the city was originally called Wentworth ─ named after the congressman and mayor of Chicago of the same name ─ it was renamed “Gurnee” after Gurnee Station and Mr. Gurnee, the former of which served as a critical point of entry to the city by rail. In addition to the actual railroad, which was used to provide a stop for those traveling to and from Chicago, Gurnee also served as a stop during the Underground Railroad.
Today, Gurnee’s biggest businesses and employers are Gurnee Mills, Six Flags, District 121 (Warren Township High School), Nosco Printing, and Gurnee School District No. 56. Of the more than 31,000 people who call the city home, about 60 percent are married couples, and about 40 percent of the households in Gurnee have children under age 18. The median household income is about $85,000. About 5 percent of people in Gurnee are reported to be under the poverty line.
