Gurnee Residents Vote To Become A Village
Gurnee, a community for ninety years, voted to become a village on Tuesday at an election held there by a vote of 90 to 4.
This village was settled in 1834 and at one time was as important as its neighbor Waukegan, but was soon outgrown because of Waukegan's location on the lake. A few months ago citizens started a campaign to incorporate but was never carried out until a threat from Waukegan to annex territory and take land up to the very doors of this community. The election followed and Gurnee is now an incorporated village.
