Waukegan is located on the western side of Lake Michigan, about 40 miles north of Chicago, Illinois. The French explorers Marquette and Joliet landed here in 1673 when exploring Lake Michigan. In 1675, the french built a stockade and trading post which was known as Little Fort. In 1849, the village was renamed Waukegan, which is based on a Potawatomi Indian word for "fort" or "house". Waukegan was the home to comedian Jack Benny and science fiction writer Ray Bradbury.
