Long Grove History
The Village of Long Grove, once a crossing of two Indian trails, was settled in the 1840’s by German Farmers. The town thrived in the 1900’s. Businesses included two general stores and a hotel. There was also a creamery, tavern and town hall. By 1945, post World War II rationing and economics left Long Grove a ghost town. Thereafter, farmers wives acquired corner stores in the town. They sold handmade dresses, desserts and antiques. Once again, Long Grove became a desirable place to visit. In 1962, the “Historic Landmark Ordinance” was passed. This ordinance was the first of its kind in the country. It requires that remodeling and new construction conform to established “Long Grove Style”. Today, many pre-Civil War buildings still remain in the Village. Plaques adorn each structure. They acknowledge original building owners. Strict building ordinances protect the history and atmosphere of the community.
Historic Covered Bridge
The town’s Historic Covered Bridge is located on Robert Parker Coffin Road in Long Grove. It was originally constructed in 1906. The structure is one of only two of it’s kind remaining in the greater Chicagoland area. For over 100 years, the bridge has stood as a symbol of this crossroads town. The Covered Bridge has made Long Grove the pedestrian-friendly, walking town it is know for. On June 15, 2018, the one-lane bridge was placed on the National Register for Historic Places. Unfortunately, just days after the designation, it was severely damaged when a box truck plowed into it. On July 11, 2018, the Daily Herald reported that Long Grove’s iconic covered bridge would be closed info the following year to accommodate repairs.

The bar features a massive 35′ mahogany bar that survived Chicago’s “Great McCormick Place Fire”. The dining area boasts a large brick fireplace and solid oak hand hewn beams. This classic road house style restaurant has been a favorite for generations.
Favorite Long Grove Events

The Chocolate festival kicks off the season every year with live music, local vendors and delicious Chocolate. There’s a Chocolate Scavenger Hunt for the kids and boutique shopping for the adults. It’s a fun festival where chocolate-infused creations and old-world charm meet.
