Libertyville

A spur on the Milwaukee Road train line brought rapid growth to the area.

Welcome to Libertyville

Libertyville owes much of its early growth to the railroad. A spur on the Milwaukee Road train line brought rapid growth to the area, which was incorporated in 1882. Today the Metra rail system provides a convenient commute for residents of this vibrant community.

Libertyville’s bustling downtown district received a Great American Main Street Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The downtown was rebuilt after a fire in 1895 destroyed most of the buildings; they were rebuilt with mandated brick reconstruction, giving them a singular style.

The downtown area includes bakeries, gourmet coffee vendors, and a microbrewery. In spring and summer months, residents enjoy a farmers market that has been operating for more than three decades.

In addition to a variety of restaurants, there are upscale boutiques, antique shops, and gift stores along Milwaukee Avenue.

Residents have eight miles of bike paths and numerous parks to enjoy along with the annual Libertyville Days Festival, an outdoor concert series, and other community events.

Three Metra stations and the Tri-State Tollway make for a convenient commute to downtown Chicago, O’Hare International Airport, and suburban corporate headquarters.
