Moving to Waukegan
Welcome to Waukegan, Illinois! The county seat of Lake County, Waukegan is home to just under 89,000 residents. Most are drawn here thanks to the city's close proximity to Chicago, its economic and cultural diversity, historic points of interest, and vibrant arts and culture scene, all of which make Waukegan a great place to call home.
Waukegan was first visited in 1673 by Pere Marquette and soon became a French trading post between settlers and the Potawatomie tribe, which makes it one of the oldest communities in Illinois. Records dating back to 1829 show that the settlement was then known as "Little Fort," and that the Potawatomie had ceded all of their land to the federal government. By 1841, Little Fort had become the county seat, resulting in a population boom through 1846. In 1849, the town was officially incorporated as Waukegan, the Potawatomie word for "fort" or "trading post."
Early settlers were attracted to Waukegan thanks to its reputation as a port city. The Illinois Parallel Railroad also brought newcomers and jobs to the area, and in 1859, Waukegan was officially incorporated as a city.
Today, the city retains a distinctive industrial character that stands out from most of Chicago's suburbs, hinting at its extensive history. Via I-94, you can be in Chicago in less than an hour, opening up an array of job and amenity possibilities.
