Lake in the Hills was a small lakeside village dotted by cottages and ranches. It now stands as one of the fastest growing suburbs in Chicago.

The history of Lake in the Hills started in 1923, when Federal Judge Walter J. La Buy began purchasing property around what is now Woods Creek Lake, the Village’s main lake. By 1926 he had acquired 472 acres as his estate & additional homes were built from there.

Lake in the Hills has attracted a lot of entrepreneurs since 1952. Most residents move here because of its high quality of life and convenient & accessible location to Chicago. Ideally located along the Randall Retail Corridor, just 7 miles north of I-90, Lake in the Hills also extends out to future retail corridors of Route 31 to the east and Route 47 to the west. Lake in the Hills is a desirable location that benefits from increasing area demand for retail sites, a skilled workforce, accommodating zoning, good logistics, easy access and strong traffic volumes.
