1818: A Frontier is Forged

Crystal Lake Historical Society

When the State of Illinois was established, what is now McHenry County was uncharted and inhabited primarily by Native Americans, trappers and traders. Join us as we celebrate the 200th birthday of our state and meet the adventurers who explored and surveyed our land, making it safe for settlers to arrive in the following decades.
