The region was first settled by a small group of farmers and later became established as a town with the establishment of the railroad station. Today the station provides service to the center of Chicago for modern commuters and travelers. There are also four central traffic routes for those who choose to travel by car. Many workers in the village commute at least 30 minutes to work, and the city is substantially white-collar with many individuals in management, office and computer positions. However, there are some current proposals for a new development that would contain some light industry within the immediate area.
Located 40 miles from Chicago's downtown, Grayslake is a small idyllic village with a population of approximately 20,957. The area currently has a number of proposals for further development including a large shopping center. At the moment, the town's residences are largely comprised of single-family homes, townhomes and row houses.SHOW MORE
