It’s fitting that Lindenhurst was named after a tree. Linden trees surrounded the community’s original farmhouse, set among several Lake County Forest Preserves.
Residents here enjoy the great outdoors with plenty of recreational activities – from hiking and biking paths, picnic tables and dog runs to cross-country skiing and fishing.
Every August, the village celebrates its heritage with Lindenfest, a four-day festival that includes carnival rides, a parade, pageant, food and live entertainment.
Students in Lindenhurst are served by three elementary school districts: Lake Villa 41, Antioch 34, and the Milburn Community Consolidated School District 24. High school students attend Lakes High School of School District 117 and Grayslake North High School in District 127.
Nearby Interstate 94 and U.S. Route 45 provide access to surrounding suburbs and downtown Chicago.
