Explore life in Algonquin & LITH, IL

The Algonquin village is known as "The Gem of the Fox River Valley", referring to the location of its downtown. Lake in the Hills was once a sleepy lakeside village of cottages and small ranches, its population skyrocketed as developers flocked to the area in the 1990s.

Established in 1890 and known for it's classic charm, the village is making the transition into a major regional hub, as it has experienced considerable suburban growth over the past 20 years. Now stretching all the way west to the busy Randall Road corridor, Algonquin has become a major commercial center, with popular shopping centers and restaurants. Additionally, the village continues to see considerable residential growth. With this growth, the village has managed to increase the commercial tax base, preserve its character and history, and substantially increase its recreational offerings and quality of life.
