The village of Libertyville is located in Lake County, Illinois, about 39 miles north of Chicago. The town was established in 1829, and it’s first recorded resident was George Vardin. According to history, Vardin took residence in a log cabin that would later be the town’s first Post Office. In 1895, a fire destroyed the majority of Libertyville’s downtown. To avoid future disasters, the village board mandated that brick be used for reconstruction. As a result, the architecture of the downtown is unified by both period and building material. In 1997, Libertyville was honored with a Great American Main Street Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In addition, in 2012, Libertyville received the Lt. Governor’s Award for Excellence for it’s drive to promote local merchants.
Cook Mansion – 413 North Milwaukee Avenue, Libertyville, IL 60048
The most prominent building in Libertyville is the Cook Mansion. It was built in 1879 by Ansel Brainerd Cook who was a teacher and stonemason. In addition, Cook was also known as an influential Chicago builder and politician. Cook used the two-story Victorian mansion as his summer home and horse farm. In his will, he donated the home for use as the Public Library. The building received a major Neoclassical renovation that converted it into a library and opened to the public in 1921. Today, the home functions as a museum operated by the Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society.
Adjacent to Libertyville, is the town of Mundelein, Illinois. Incorporated in 1909, the village grew from a small farming community into a vibrant township. Peter Shaddle was the first known settler. The log cabin he built was located on the grounds of what is now St. Mary of the Lake Seminary. As the town expanded, the Diamond Lake area was established. Mundelein changed names several times throughout history. The original name was “Merchants Grove”. Later it was changed to “Holcomb, after John Holcomb, an important local business man. In 1909, the town incorporated under the name of “Rockefeller”, after railroad magnate John Rockefeller. Shortly after, it became “Area”, after an acronym used by a successful school. Finally, in 1924, the Village changed it’s name to “Mundelein” in honor of Cardinal George Mundelein of Chicago, who purchased the property and authorized construction of St. Mary’s of the Lake Seminary.
Old Village Hall – 440 E. Hawley Street, Mundelein, IL 60060
As a “thank you” gift for naming the Village after him, Cardinal Mundelein gave the community a 1925 Stoughton fire truck. Needing a location to store the vehicle, the Village raised $36,000 to build a permanent Old Village Hall. Once completed, the building housed the Mayor’s office, Village offices, Police Department, Fire Department and “Old #1”, the fire truck. An open area on the second floor served as a banquet hall and community room for residents. The building was used by the Village until 2014.
DF Design has worked on several projects in our 100-year old home over the years. His work has dramatically increased the beauty of our living space. One of my favorite things about Dennis is his respect for our own style. Dennis works to incorporate our lifestyle, art and overall vision without ever suggesting we should change our taste. Because of this approach we have trusted Dennis to make some dramatic enhancements to our home. An additional benefit of working with Dennis is his network of quality builders/tradesman who complete the work when they say they will. DF Design delivers a fun experience and fantastic results!
Professional services that produced my desired results. Showed to have board experience with great communication skills. Made me feel like they were team players on my side. Would use their services again.
We are doing a small update on our kitchen and flooring. DF Design, Inc provided a consultation, we received SO MUCH valuable information! Not only in the areas of update but our house overall. From paint to lighting sizing and design recommendations to where the best place is to spend in our home. We will be doing a basement update in the future and will be sure to call back for their valuable assistance. THANK YOU! A must for anyone trying to put the pieces together or buying a new home
Thanks to Dennis and his wonderful staff. His eye for color has brought us back to use his expertise years after the first repainting of our house. After following his ideas, I am thrilled to have a home that flows smoothly from one room to another. Dennis listened and tweaked his suggestions to create an atmosphere that is what we were looking for. I must admit, his first suggestions are typically right on target, just have to have faith and trust in his expertise.
I hired DF Design for a virtual consult on flooring and painting colors. They were extremely professional and helpful during my consult and helped me stay on task and not get distracted in 100 different directions. This made the focus very narrowed and we were able to make color decisions together effectively so that I could start the process of my remodel. Will definitely use them again.
