Lincolnshire is a village located in Vernon Township, Lake County, Illinois, and is a northern suburb of Chicago. According to the 2020 census, the population was 7,940. The village was incorporated on August 5, 1957, from the unincorporated Half Day area to develop a residential subdivision. It experienced significant expansion from 1983 through the 1990s. The Des Plaines River runs through the village from north to south, and Illinois Route 22 divides it east to west.

The village is served by the public Adlai E. Stevenson High School, Laura B. Sprague and Half Day elementary schools, and Daniel Wright Junior High School, which are all part of Lincolnshire-Prairie View School District 103. Lincolnshire hosts several major corporations, including Aon Hewitt, Zebra Technologies, CDW, and Sysmex, resulting in a daytime population of over 20,000. The Village of Lincolnshire and other organizations host various annual events, such as the Fourth of July celebration, Art Festival, and Boo Bash.

Lincolnshire has its own Police Department, which works closely with local school districts, and it manages a public works system funded by the village. The village sources its water from the city of Highland Park, which in turn gets its supply from Lake Michigan. Lincolnshire operates under a council–manager government and is a home-rule municipality. 

The village of Lincolnshire is a suburb of Chicago, situated in the southern part of Lake County in the extreme northeastern region of Illinois. The Des Plaines River winds through Lincolnshire, splitting the village vertically at the village hall, while Half Day Road (Illinois Route 22) divides it horizontally. Additionally, Milwaukee Avenue (U.S. Route 45) runs north-south through Lincolnshire, connecting it to Buffalo Grove to the south and Vernon Hills to the north.

Since 1988, Lincolnshire has been recognized as a Tree City USA annually. To protect its greenery, the village enacted the "Tree Preservation Ordinance," which imposes strict regulations on tree removal.

Lincolnshire is located at the boundary of two Chicago-area watersheds: one for the Des Plaines River and the other for the nearby north fork of the Chicago River, a situation influenced by the presence of the Des Plaines River in the village.

Economy in Lincolnshire, Illinois

Lincolnshire is known as a desirable community for both residents and businesses in the Chicago area. The village boasts several prominent corporate headquarters, seven first-class hotels, 30 restaurants, and numerous thriving retailers and entertainment venues. Businesses and residents are attracted to Lincolnshire due to its proximity to major highways, O’Hare International Airport, relatively low taxes, award-winning public schools, extensive parks and forest preserves, and a business-friendly local government.

A key attraction in Lincolnshire is the iconic Lincolnshire Marriott Resort, featuring modern meeting and banquet facilities, Crane’s Landing championship golf course, and the Marriott Theatre. Par-King Skill Golf also draws thousands of families to its scenic miniature golf course, named one of the best miniature golf courses in Illinois.

Lincolnshire hosts several high-profile global headquarters, including Alight, Zebra Technologies, Sysmex Corporation, HydraForce, Flexan, and Nexus Pharmaceuticals. Additionally, Camping World, a Fortune 500 company, is headquartered in the village. With its strategic location and supportive community, Lincolnshire is well-positioned to attract new businesses and residents, diversify its economic base, and maintain its small-town charm and high quality of life.

Education in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire is served by two main school districts: Lincolnshire-Prairie View School District 103 and Adlai E. Stevenson High School District 125. Some students in Lincolnshire also attend schools in the Aptakisic-Tripp Community Consolidated School District 102 in nearby Buffalo Grove. District 103, which feeds into District 125, includes three schools: Laura B. Sprague Elementary School (K-2), Half Day Intermediate School (3-5), and Daniel Wright Junior High School (6-8). District 125 consists solely of Adlai E. Stevenson High School. Both districts are publicly funded.

A small portion of Lincolnshire, located in West Deerfield Township, is served by Bannockburn School in Bannockburn, Illinois, and Deerfield High School.

The first school in Lincolnshire was Half Day Intermediate School, originally a one-room schoolhouse serving all grades. Major expansions between 1958 and 1965 were not enough to accommodate the growing population, leading to its closure in 1983. Its responsibilities were divided between Laura B. Sprague Elementary School and Daniel Wright Junior High School. Half Day School reopened nine years later as the other schools reached capacity. Another expansion in 2017 accommodated increased student numbers and moved grade 6 to Half Day from Daniel Wright.

Lincolnshire also has several non-public educational institutions. DeVry University's Keller School of Management has a branch in Lincolnshire, and the Southlakes Campus of the College of Lake County is nearby in Vernon Hills. Stevenson High School alumni can apply to the University of Illinois at an extension site in Grayslake. The Lincolnshire Community Nursery School, founded in 1973, serves preschoolers from the eastern part of the village.

The Vernon Area Public Library, located in Lincolnshire, serves a large part of Vernon Township, including the villages of Lincolnshire, Buffalo Grove, Long Grove, and parts of Vernon Hills. The library hosts special events such as book talks and informational presentations.
