Welcome to the Village of Antioch, Illinois. The Village of Antioch is committed to continuing the high quality of life enjoyed by the citizens and businesses of Antioch community. Our mission is to enhance and preserve this quality of life by providing fiscally sound and responsive services, programs and facilities with the highest degree of professionalism, integrity and efficiency so that Antioch continues to be a great place to live and work. Antioch residents can reach both Chicago and Milwaukee by way of Interstate 94 and US 41. Also, there is Metra commuter service between Antioch and Chicago.
I invite you to experience our hometown atmosphere as you stroll and shop in our beautiful and quaint downtown. We are also fortunate to have 15 developed parks inside the village limits. These facilities provide for the recreational needs of our community. Antioch’s newest park is the William E. Brook Wetland Sanctuary and Entertainment Center which is located in our downtown area. This 9-acre area includes an educational wetland sanctuary with a boardwalk, walking path, interpretive nature signs, two ponds and the entertainment center. The Village of Antioch’s "It's Thursday" concerts are held at the entertainment center and the park area is also the location for Antioch’s “Taste of Summer”, carnivals, craft fairs and special events throughout the year. These events are sponsored by the Village of Antioch, Antioch Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other organizations of our community.
One of the most scenic sights in Lake County is the Hiram Buttrick Sawmill. The authentic reproduction was built in 1976 as a Bicentennial project. The adjacent arboretum is a perfect place to hold a picnic or wedding. Tours can be arranged through the Village of Antioch’s Park and Recreation Department.
