Enjoy this brief sketch of the local history of Lake county IL. from 1801 to 1918.
The 1st stage route from northern Illinois was to Janesville, Wisconsin, via of Chicago. The “stage driver.” says that he suffered a good many hardships, but he also had many funny, as well as amusing experiences; yet he had no trouble with the Indians. It took one week to make a round trip, consequently in those days they received mail once a week only. Not many letters were sent because the postage was $0.25 for each letter, and none of the letters were enclosed in envelopes.
