Preserving, Protecting, and Enhancing Millburn

Placement of buildings on historic registers
Obtaining the Highway 45 bypass
  • Our members attended many meetings with members of local and state government in an attempt to keep the inevitable widening of US Highway 45 from destroying the village.

    The efforts were rewarded when the Illinois Department of Transportation detailed their plans for the bypass to the west of the village.

    Have a look at our materials for this project.

  • Lake County and the Illinois Department of Transportation are conducting a new study to determine whether the route proposed years ago is still the most beneficial one. Updated information can be found at
Cemetery Preservation
