Libertyville is a village of about 20,000 people. Located five miles west of Lake Michigan on the Des Plaines River, Libertyville is just over an hour’s drive from downtown Chicago. Many people who work in Chicago choose to commute from Libertyville on a daily basis due to the high quality of life in the suburb.
In August 1829, the land that now makes up Libertyville was sold by the Potawatomi Indians to the U.S. government for $12,000 cash, the delivery of 50 barrels of salt, and the equivalent of an additional $12,000 in goods. The sale was forced as a result of economic pressures felt by the tribe.
Soon after the sale, sometime around 1835 ─ as specified by the treaty between the tribe and the federal government ─ the Potawatomi left the land and the first non-indigenous person took up residence in a cabin in Libertyville. The cabin was located at the same site that the Cook Memorial Public Library now stands.
In 1879, the village’s most prominent building, the Cook mansion, was established. Today, it is a museum and point of interest in Libertyville. Although the downtown area of Libertyville continued to grow and develop, it was destroyed in large part by a fire in 1895. When the downtown area was reconstructed, village board officials demanded that brick be used.
Many residents of Libertyville commute to Chicago for work. Those who are employed in Libertyville are likely to work for one of the village’s top employers, including the Advocate Condell Medical Center, Brightstar, Hollister Incorporated, Volkswagen Credit, Lake County, Fabrication Technologies, Commonwealth Edison, or Libertyville District 70 (the school district).
The average income for a family in Libertyville is well above the national average. Fewer than 2 percent of families live below the poverty line in Libertyville. The median home value in Libertyville is over $400,000, according to a Zillow Market Report.
