The Town Of Crystal Lake, Illinois is your source for information on Crystal Lake. If your moving to Crystal Lake or just visiting, you will find all kinds of information on real estate, schools, areas, parks, churches, crime, things to do, places to visit, local businesses, dining, and much more!The progression of Crystal Lake from vast prairie lands to the burgeoning hub of industry and commerce that it is today was a natural one. From the beginning, Native American tribes were attracted to its ideal location; the "clear as crystal" lake from which the Village derived its name served as an abundant resource for Sac and Fox Indians. With the defeat of Blackhawk in 1832, the United States government became the possessor of the lands that now encompass Crystal Lake and encouraged settlement. The Village of Crystal Lake was laid out in 1839-40 and incorporated in 1874, centered around a public square where the Chamber offices are now located.

Rail transportation was extended through the area in 1855, acting as a catalyst for the regionís growth. Nunda, a village north of Crystal Lake, eventually became the business center of the area and enjoyed a steady and great population increase. Nunda was incorporated in January of 1874 and changed its name to "North Crystal Lake" in 1908 in compliance with a petition by its citizens. North Crystal Lake was annexed to Crystal Lake September 23, 1914.

With a population of more than 35,000 people, Crystal Lake continues to develop as an industrial and commercial leader, and is looking forward to a future as promising and dynamic as its past.

Crystal Lake is ideally situated just an hour northwest of the Chicago Metropolitan area. State Route 31 and Randall Road are direct north/south routes to Interstate 90, and State Route 176 runs east/west to I-94 and Lake Michigan, making the drive to Chicago and surrounding communities a breeze.

For those who would rather avoid the morning traffic and opt instead for a good book and cup of coffee, METRA has 24 commuter trains that make the daily trip to Chicago in about 70 minutes. Bus transportation is provided by PACE and Dial-A-Ride. For those who require air travel, OíHare International Airport is only 35 miles southeast, and Midway Airport is 50 miles away. Mitchell Field in Milwaukee is a 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive. Lake in the Hills Airport, just a few miles south of the city, boasts a 3,800-foot runway and provides full services for private and commercial chartered flights.
