Long Grove Historic Village

Long Grove, IL 60047

Long Grove Historic Village, a rural community just 35 miles northwest of Chicago, boasts the motto of “Yesterday’s Charm, Today’s Lifestyles.”

The community’s roots date back to the early 1800’s when German farmers settled on the land and these same roots are upheld within the community today.

As you cross the signature covered bridge, you are thrust back in time as you stroll the cobblestone walks past historic homes and buildings while visiting any number of the unique shops and restaurants.

Pick up canned jams, jellies, and more at the Galena Canning Company.

Grab your garden décor at The Back Porch, a specialty shop filled with Corinthian bells and whimsical garden décor.

Grab a little treat along the way at The Long Grove Popcorn Shoppe, Long Grove Confectionery, or Ma & Pa’s Candy.

Take a nostalgic trip back in time at Nifty 50’s and explore the fashion and entertainment of an era that is often hailed as one of America’s best.

From kitchen supplies, to home décor, jewelry, and so much more, Long Grove Historic Village has a little bit of something for everyone.

Top your day off with a stop at The Village Tavern and dive into one of their ½ burgers.

Throughout the year, the town hosts several Signature festivals that have become the place to be; Chocolate Fest in May, Strawberry Festival in June, and Apple Fest in September.

Long Grove Vintage Days is also a must visit for any collector; the two-day street market is the go-to for all things vintage, antique, reclaimed, repurposed, upcycled and handmade.

Fun Fact – As fun as any visit to Long Grove is, nothing can top walking the streets of the old-time village during the holiday season with a cup of hot cocoa in hand as the snow falls around you and music and joy ring out through the air.
