History Trail

In 2020, Grayslake turned 125 years old. Large scale events, including a day-long guided bike tour, were planned as part of the celebration. This year, as we Celebrate Grayslake 125+1, we're inviting you to walk, bike, hike, skate, skip, jump, or otherwise get out and visit 25 locations in Grayslake to learn about our community. The Grayslake Chamber is offering $100 in Chamber Bucks – money that can be used at any business in Grayslake that is a Chamber member – to 5 people who visit all 25 locations.

Using the addresses provided, go to each of the 25 stops and learn about the buildings or landmarks at each location. You can visit in number order or choose your own adventure. There should be a sign at each location so you know you've found the right spot! You can download the History Trail guide by clicking here.

How to Win Chamber Bucks:
Between July 17 and August 22, 2021, visit stops 1-25 and take a selfie. When you have photos at all 25 locations, email them to gvcevents@villageofgrayslake.com. Each person in the photos is eligible to enter – group pictures are allowed and encouraged! Winners will be announced the week of August 23rd.
