Voted one of 2014’s Best Places to Live by Chicago Magazine, Lake Bluff is a quaint North Shore suburb located approximately 35 miles outside of the city. Bordered by Lake Michigan, the village was named for the prominent bluff overlooking the lake that extends across the eastern boundary. With easy access to both Chicago and Milwaukee, Lake Bluff is an ideal home for local commuters.
In 1836, John and Catherine Cloes, along with their son Henry, claimed 100 acres of land between Lake Michigan and the Green Bay Trail, becoming the first to settle within what would grow into the Lake Bluff suburb. By 1895, Lake Bluff had firmly established, and it incorporated as a village. A comprehensive plan for development of the Lake Bluff suburb was instituted in the 1920s, which saw several brick storefronts added as well as an expansion of the East School. Unfortunately, the full scope of the project went unrealized as a casualty of the Great Depression. The “baby boom” era after the second World War spurred further growth in the Lake Bluff suburb; new subdivisions opened along Green Bay Road and three new schools had been established by the end of the 1960s. Now a lively and vital North Shore suburb, Lake Bluff has never relinquished its small-town flavor and friendly spirit.
