Often referred to as "one of the North Shore's best kept secrets", the Village of Bannockburn is located 27 miles north of downtown Chicago.

Village of Bannockburn

Residents enjoy the privacy afforded by estate-sized lots and carefully planned landscape buffers as well as convenient proximity to the neighboring communities of Deerfield, Lincolnshire, Lake Forest and Highland Park.

The first settlers to the area arrived in 1835 from County Meath, Ireland. Later, an architect and builder from Scotland named William Aitken created a master plan covering 110 acres where he intended to build country estates for people who wanted a genteel style of living. Over the years more land was acquired and today the village encompasses 1,318 acres. Aitken's original intent - to create a residential community of homes on large tracts of land within a rural atmosphere comprising natural landscapes and open spaces - is preserved to this day.

Residents and visitors enjoy local parks, beaches, tennis, swimming and water-sport recreation on Lake Michigan. Many of the homes in the community are custom designed on wooded, spacious lots, while mansions with spectacular lake front vistas remain on sprawling estates. Lake Bluff residents also enjoy easy access to the Loop, Ravinia Festival and world class golf courses.

The downtown business district features two blocks of shops and services while a contemporary shopping center and industrial park have expanded commercial development on the west side of town. Neighboring Lake Forest provides another unique shopping venue, historic Market Square.

The Village is well known in and around the area for its creative and well attended Fourth of July Parade which is coordinated by a group of local volunteers. In addition to the annual parade, each summer (June through October) the Village hosts a Farmers' Market on the Village Green on Friday mornings from 7:00 to 12:00 p.m. This event showcases some of the very best fresh produce, cut flowers and baked goods in the County. In addition to these favorites, the Village supports a wide array of special events from art festivals to concerts and community barbecues.
