Gurnee Information and Highlights

Gurnee is a charming village that resides in Lake County, Illinois. It borders Waukegan and is considered a part of the Chicago metropolitan area. Over twenty-six million visitors come annually to visit the Six Flags Great America Park as well as the Gurnee Mills mall. Tourists and wanderers have plenty to look forward to, in short. Early settlers to the area emigrated from the town of Warren, New York via foot and horseback. In 1835-1836, a land company, also from New York, founded a Community House, which was the site of the old Gurnee Grade School, to accommodate families during the settlement process and while waiting for land grants from the government. A ford used by the Potowatomi Indians was nearby, that they used to cross the river, which would lead to a floating log bridge being constructed in 1842. As time progressed, the area that had been named under the Warren Township began its transition to its current name after the 14th mayor of Chicago, Walter S. Gurnee, agreed to develop a station in Wentworth that was named, appropriately, “Gurnee Station”. The name went on to be incorporated.

Weather
