4-21-14 Illinois Trip – Day 1
Libertyville is a thriving community of 20,315 in Lake County, Illinois. As this was a trip down memory lane, our main reason for visiting here was Lambs Farm. Lambs Farm is a community of 250 developmentally disabled adults with a variety of wonderful shops and a restaurant for the general public. My first trip here was at age 6 in 1972, so it was time to come back! Here is the town’s history.
Libertyville also has a beautiful historic downtown with many nice shops and buildings. Here is a complete list of services offered.
The centerpiece of downtown is the Ansel B. Cook House, home of the first permanent settler in Libertyville in 1878.
This poem was near the door.
The David Adler Cultural Art Center is the pride of Libertyville, housed in the architect’s historic home near Adler Park.
Just a little south of Libertyville is the Adlai Stevenson home, now a museum.
After our day at Lambs Farm, we were hungry and wanted some Chicago flavor. We went to Slott’s Hots, a Libertyville favorite for the last 35 years!
We had a great time in Libertyville and hope to return again soon!
