Inverness is a quiet residential community known for its rolling landscape and natural beauty.
With beautiful scenery, ample green space and wooded hills, Inverness reportedly earned its name because the land reminded developer Arthur T. McIntosh of the capital of the Scottish Highlands. Today, the village maintains its rural character and features a variety of attractive homes, most of which are set on an acre or more.
Residents enjoy Maggie Rogers Park, North Park and South Park, as well as the forest preserves and golf courses that surround the community. The Inverness Park District maintains the three parks, which have pickleball and tennis courts at certain locations. Youth recreational activities are also offered throughout the year along with a Hometown Holiday celebration for community members to celebrate the season. The village is also home to the private Inverness Golf Club.
Situated in the heart of Inverness, Williamsburg Village is the community’s main business district. The office complex matches the village’s aesthetic and is conveniently located near I-90.
Students are primarily served by Barrington 220 School District, Community Consolidated School District 15 and Township High School District 211.
Commuters have access to Metra rail service in the neighboring communities of Palatine and Barrington.
