From Humble Beginnings to Larger Illinois City
The city of Waukegan is situated eight miles south of the Wisconsin border on the shores of Lake Michigan. The community is one of the oldest in Illinois, dating back to the early 1800s when it was known as "Little Fort." The name Waukegan was derived from a Potawatomi word meaning "little fort" and became the official name in 1849.
Early Waukegan, a Manufacturing City
As a lake port, much of the early economy focused around shipping agriculture goods to the larger city of Chicago by way of Lake Michigan. However, when the railroad came to the town in 1855, interest was turned to manufacturing.
In the late 1800s and through the middle of the twentieth century, Waukegan was, for the most part, a manufacturing and industrial city. With the railroad stop and lake port, it was an ideal place for the much-needed industry. But not unlike many other Midwest and U.S. cities, the manufacturing industries all but were gone from the area by the turn of the century.
Recent Revitalization of Downtown Waukegan, IL
With manufacturing and industries either closing or moving to cheaper labor markets, the city has looked to new ways to support its growing population. There are two larger cities on either side of it to the north, Milwaukee, and to the south, Chicago. Waukegan hopes to make itself a desirable place to live to attract workers from both cities.
The plan involves what would be a multi-million dollar face lift for the city. With over three miles of lakefront and two harbors, the future of the city could easily be tied with recreational boating and lavish lake parks. There are plans for waterfront condominiums and other residential spaces to bring interest to those wishing to live outside of the larger cities.
The downtown is scheduled to have old buildings restored as well. The renovation already started with the refurbishment of the Genesee Theatre in the downtown area after it had been closed for more than a decade. The theatre reopened in 2003, drawing people from miles around.
The area has big plans, all stemming from the local government. The City of Waukegan planners are making process towards their goal. You can research the city website for information on planning and other city services and historical information. You can also visit the city hall at:

The community's two hospitals, both owned by Vista Health, support its residents' health care needs.

The future looks bright for Lake County. The city has chosen to look both to the past and future to move toward a new and exciting time of growth and, hopefully, prosperity.
