Timeline of Lake Forest History

About the Timeline

The Timeline, created in 2011 in honor of Lake Forest’s 150th anniversary, contains over 600 events from Lake Forest history. It is an interactive document, with photographs to give you a sense of time and place, and weblinks to click to find out more.

The Timeline is also a living document – a work in progress. We welcome submissions of events and photos for the Timeline from everyone in the community – keep checking back for periodic updates. To submit an event, photo or correction, contact the staff.
