Overview


Long Grove is a unique village. Nestled between stands of oak and hickory trees and slow-moving creeks, and surrounded by quiet farmland, it is an escape from the suburban sprawl that can be found a short drive in any direction. First settled in the 1830s by German immigrants, Long Grove served as a crossroads between Chicago and Milwaukee, and many city dwellers today pass through its signature covered bridge and into the village's charming early-1900s shopping district to revisit that bygone era of American history. Old churches, barns, and businesses--along with the people whose hard work helped the village prosper--are captured in over 200 vintage photographs within the pages of Long Grove.
