ABOUT


Highwood is a city in Moraine Township, Lake County, Illinois, United States.


History
The Potawatomi people lived in the area until the 1833 Treaty of Chicago.Highwood was named from the wooded setting of the original townsite at a lofty elevation relative to the lake.Highwood was the location of the headquarters of the Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad, a defunct railroad whose North Shore Line ran parallel to the Chicago and North Western Railway's trackage now know today as Metra's Union Pacific/North line. This defunct railroad once carried over 28 million passengers in a single year during World War Two.Given the dry nature of most towns between Evanston and Kenosha, Highwood enjoyed a high per capita number of bars and taverns.In the 1920s a large number of Italian immigrants moved to Highwood, many from Dalzell, a coal mining town in Bureau Co. Today there are still many good Italian restaurants in the town.
