The Town Of Antioch, Illinois is your source for information on Antioch. If your moving to Antioch 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!Located on Routes 83 and 173 in the northern section of Lake County, Antioch is a quaint, quiet village situated in the Chain of Lakes region of northeast Illinois. As the village and its surrounding area grew in size, Metra opened the North Central rail line in 1996, bringing easy access to Chicago and its near suburbs. This rail expansion promoted new growth in the area, with developers building hundreds of homes in new subdivisions. Nearby expressways also provide fast access to O’Hare International Airport.

With its proximity to the 75 regional lakes and award-winning forest preserves, Antioch was first known as a popular vacation sport for Chicagoans. Today it still provides year-round activities for all ages. In addition, with a location halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee, there is no end to the kind of cultural and recreational choices residents have.

In 1856 early settlers of the region built a sawmill and a gristmill along with small shops. Early cottages were built for tourism leading to the development of small industries such as ice harvesting. Later the Pickard China Company and the Thelen Sand and Gravel Company moved to Antioch. The village, which was incorporated in 1892, still retains much of its original charm. The downtown streets are lined with many unique specialty shops along with great restaurants. The village enjoys a Community Theater, a Heritage Museum, parks, and golf courses in addition to the many lakes in the area for fishing, boating, and swimming.

The six excellent public schools with a low teacher-pupil ratio continue to draw young families to Antioch. The Antioch Public Library boasts state-of-the-art services, which include an online catalog, outstanding youth and adult classes, computer classes, and book discussions. A short drive away is a choice of colleges including Lake Forest College, Trinity College, and Baret College.

As Antioch experiences continued new housing, transportation, and commercial growth, its residents will share in the expanded recreational and shopping conveniences it will offer. Country living with easy access to major cities is the ideal life.
