THINGS TO DO A nostalgic small-town feel you can’t help but fall in love with. Rich with arts and culture, annual festivals and celebrations, unique shopping and dining, music and nightlife. A picturesque and historic town square and a world-renowned Opera House draw visitors from near and far. Make Woodstock your next stop. Visit. Start a business. Relocate here. Woodstock has it all.

STROLL THE HISTORIC WOODSTOCK SQUARE

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, two historic structures dominate the Woodstock Square — the Woodstock Opera House and the Old Courthouse & Sheriff’s House complex. The Park in the Square is home to year-round festivals, concerts, and events, making it the heart of the community, surrounded by shopping, dining and entertainment. Visit realwoodstock.com to plan your trip.

WOODSTOCK OPERA HOUSE

121 Van Buren St. (South side of Square) (815) 338-5300 www.woodstockoperahouse.com Built in 1889, the Woodstock Opera House was carefully restored to its “Steamboat Gothic” beauty in the mid-1970s. Managed by the City of Woodstock, the Opera House has, for over 125 years, served as an active performing arts/cultural center, meeting place and focal point of Woodstock. The Opera House once served as the city hall, library, and fire department. Performers who spent their early years on the Opera House stage include

Orson Welles and Paul Newman. Today, the Opera House remains the cultural entertainment center of Woodstock. Plays, concerts, and performances are scheduled at the Opera House throughout the year, including the Midwest Woodstock Mozart Festival, held each summer. Performance schedules are available at the box office in the Opera House lobby. The Opera House coordinates the summer city band concerts each summer in the Park on the Square. The city band celebrates its 137th consecutive season in 2021. The park’s gazebo can be booked for weddings and other activities through the Opera House. The adjacent Stage Left Café hosts local talent several nights a week and can be rented for meetings and workshops during the day and private parties in the evening. The Opera House’s Community Room is also available for public use and features an ongoing visual arts exhibition and the Christmas Tree Walk during the holidays.

OLD COURTHOUSE & SHERIFF’S HOUSE

101 N. Johnson St., Woodstock friendsoftheoldcourthouse.org Woodstock is the seat of government for McHenry County and Woodstock’s Historic Square

is the site of the original Old McHenry County Courthouse, built in 1857, and Sheriff’s House & Jail, added in 1887. These buildings, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are owned by the City of Woodstock, and represent significant historic properties. The Old Courthouse, a simple Italianate structure built under the design of Chicago’s famed architect John Mills Van Osdel, is similar to the Cook County Courthouse of 1853 that was destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire. The Old Courthouse is one of the few pre-Civil War Courthouses left standing in Illinois today. The Sheriff’s House & Jail lodged Pullman Strike labor leader Eugene Debs for a period of six months in 1894 for refusing to comply with a court injunction related to the Pullman strike. The building served as the McHenry County government offices until the early 1970s when the county moved these services to a new, larger facility in Woodstock. Although sections of the buildings are currently inaccessible, for the past 26 years the Courthouse has hosted yearround fine art exhibitions as the Old Courthouse Arts Center, and also offers a popular restaurant on the ground floor enjoyed by both residents and tourists.

Things to Do The City has begun essential repairs and restoration of these buildings to ensure maximum public enjoyment for years to come. Estimates to restore the buildings to their former glory are upwards of $5 million. An appointed Old Courthouse and Sheriff’s House Advisory Commission, and the community volunteer group Friends of the Old Courthouse, actively seek funding partners to accelerate building renovations and allow beneficial re-use by the public.

A LITTLE HISTORY

Chester Gould, creator of the Dick Tracy comic strip which ran 1931 to 1977, lived in rural Woodstock for 50 years. The Dick Tracy comic strip originally premiered in the Detroit Mirror, then in the New York Daily News, followed by the Chicago Tribune, and then on to nationwide syndication, and eventually to international audiences. The crime fighting adventures of Gould’s Dick Tracy character were so popular that the comic strip appeared on the front page of the New York Daily News for 45 consecutive years, and it was seen in 27 foreign papers. It is one of the top 10 longest running comic strips of all time.

VILLAGE OF WONDER LAKE WONDER LAKE AREA The Wonder Lake community is mainly a residential area that surrounds Wonder Lake, a private lake that was created in 1929 by a group of Chicago businessmen that called themselves “The Syndicate”. They damned the Nippersink Creek and flooded the lowlands to the south to create the private 830 acre recreational lake. These original developers envisioned a summer resort community and recreation center here but their vision was cut short by the Great Depression that lingered though the 1930’s. Wonder Lake eventually evolved into what it is today, one community built around a private lake with mostly permanent year-round residents and a handful of part-time summer and weekend residents. Situated just northeast of Woodstock, the McHenry County seat, Wonder Lake offers a number of recreational uses including fishing, sailing, boating and water skiing. In addition, outdoor enthusiasts can visit Glacier Park, a large tract of land that is part of the McHenry County Conservation District located directly north of the Lake. The population of the Wonder Lake area is approximately 15,000 with just over 4100 residing within the corporate limits of the Village of Wonder Lake. The village was

incorporated in 1974 as the Village of Sunrise Ridge. The name was later changed to the Village of Wonder Lake. The Village provides parks, public works, police protection and related services to its constituents. The Village of Wonder Lake is currently made up of the following subdivisions around Wonder Lake: Deep Springs Woods I, Deerpath, Hickory Falls I, Hickory Falls II, Lookout Point Unit I, Shore Hills, Sunrise Ridge, Sunrise Ridge Estates, The Meadows of West Bay, White Oaks Bay, Wooded Shores, Woods Creek and a portion of Wonderview. The remainder of the population lives in unincorporated subdivisions surrounding the lake. Most subdivisions are members of the Master Property Owners Association (MPOA) which is charged with maintaining and enhancing the lake. The Wonder Lake community is supported by a combination of small retail shops, restaurants and businesses with major retailers available in nearby Woodstock to the southwest and McHenry to the east. Wonder Lake is intersected by two townships and serviced by four school districts. The Wonder Lake community is privileged to be the home of the Wonder Lake Shi Show Team. Nationally recognized,

they entertain on the lake nearly every Friday evening during the summer. The community supports many clubs and organizations, the oldest social one being the Yacht Club. Sailboat races occur every Sunday in the summer. The Wonder Lake Sportsman’s Club, which is the oldest, actively helps manage wildlife in and around the lake. Fish stocking, bird management and wetland protection and restoration are part of their mission. Fourth of July is the premier event of the year in Wonder Lake. A midday parade through the downtown area is followed by a traditional performance by the Wonder Lake Ski Show Team. The celebration culminates in a spectacular fireworks show over the lake. Annual community fundraising efforts make this all possible. It’s an exciting time to part of the Wonder Lake Community. The Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry is proud to serve the Wonder Lake community and welcomes all new businesses and residents to the area! Together we can be a cohesive voice in local matters. You can stay informed of new developments in the area, network with an expanded business community and engage with community leaders. We look forward to growing this relationship with the Wonder Lake community!

McHenry County Board Mike Buehler, McHenry County Board Chairman McHenry County Government Center 2200 N. Seminary Ave. Woodstock, IL 60098 (815) 334-4224 TOWNSHIP GOVERNMENT Township Government is older than 1776. It originated in the mid-1600s, more than 100 years before our country became an independent nation. Township government in Illinois dates back to 1787, when Congress established the Northwest Territory and designated counties and townships within the territories. When the

second Illinois Constitution was adopted in 1848 it gave counties the option to include townships in their governmental structure. A majority of Illinois counties chose the township system in a general election of 1849, among them being McHenry County, where the voters almost unanimously chose township government in a referendum in November of 1849. A Township, as a political and geographic subdivision, is a municipal corporate body that can sue and be sued, own property, borrow money and levy taxes. The officials may act for the electorate in the Township’s name when conducting business.

Townships have many duties and some permissive powers.

Government highway commissioner and four trustees. The term of office for each position is four years. Terms are synchronous rather than staggered. The annual meeting of the township electors is held the second Tuesday in April each year. The Supervisor is the Chief Executive Officer of the township and is responsible for the township funds, serving as treasurer of all funds and records all transactions in an official book. The Supervisor must file a statement of the financial status of the township with the township clerk. A summary of this report must be published annually. One of the most important functions of the Supervisor is in the area of General Assistance. The Supervisor of General Assistance gives aid to the needy. Money used for this purpose is raised by local taxes and non-State receiving units, which applies to most of the 1,400 plus townships in Illinois. The money thus raised is used to provide food, shelter, utilities, medical care and burial whenever necessary.

EDUCATION Woodstock School District 200 serves approximately 6,700 students in grades PreK-12 who live in the communities of Woodstock, Bull Valley, Greenwood, the west side of Wonder Lake, and unincorporated McHenry County. The school district was formed in 1969, when two elementary districts and one high school district consolidated, but education in Woodstock started in 1847. Today, our schools offer a strong standardsbased educational program that is based on best practices and innovation but that is also rooted in the rich traditions of our 150-year old community. District 200 currently operates 12 schools: the Verda Dierzen Early Learning Center where all of the community’s youngest children begin their education; six elementary schools serving students in grades 1-5; two middle schools for students in grades 6-8; two comprehensive high schools; and the Clay Academy, a therapeutic day school for students in grades 3-12 with special needs. A 2006 referendum allowed the school district to complete $105 million in school construction which included new elementary, middle and high school buildings, an addition to the early learning center, and the remodeling and conversion of a former middle school to an elementary school.

District 200 provides a wide variety of programs to help every child to succeed. Early childhood education, dual language, bilingual and gifted programs, Advanced Placement classes, career and technical training, and special needs programs strengthen the general education curriculum. A districtwide focus on reading, writing and mathematics combined with the use of technology as a learning tool help prepare all students for success in and outside of the classroom. District 200 high school students excel at the state and national levels in both academics and extracurricular activities. District 200 high school students perform very well on ACT

and Advanced Placement tests, and our graduates attend some of the top colleges and universities in the nation. Elementary and middle school students consistently score above the state average on standardized achievement tests. The Verda Dierzen Early Learning Center is a recognized model for early childhood education. Outside of the classroom, District 200 provides an extensive selection of athletic, fine arts, enrichment and extra-curricular programs. Students regularly excel at the state level in a variety of competitions, including music, mathematics, graphic arts and athletic events.

GETTING INVOLVED * denotes WACCI member

The Woodstock community embodies philanthropy, giving back and volunteerism. There are many opportunities within the Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce to get more involved and develop leadership skills by chairing a committee or running a networking group.

It’s a great way to help others, meet people, make and advance careers.

HISPANIC CONNECTIONS - OUR PARTNERS

ABOUT HISPANIC CONNECTIONS El grupo Conexiones Hispanas nació de una visión de negocios Hispanos conectando para apoyarse el uno al otro, crecer individualmente y colectivamente, y servir a la comunidad. Conectamos con líderes increíbles en la comunidad que vieron un potencial, creyeron en cada uno y pusieron su liderazgo a trabajar para no solo beneficiarse mutuamente, pero ir más allá y beneficiar a una comunidad con una necesidad de una voz. Estamos estableciendo un lugar para la comunidad hispana y poder expresarse e integrarse con la población del condado de McHenry. Conexiones Hispanas no es solo un grupo de redes laborales donde negocios vienen y se reúnen, integran, se apoyan mutuamente y buscan crecer a través de referencias de clientes, pero es un grupo que ha evolucionado y se ha vuelto la voz de una comunidad que está ansiosa de integrarse y ser escuchada. Conexiones Hispanas es realmente un grupo de redes laborales y de servicio comunitario. Hemos creado eventos como la celebración

Apoyamos a estudiantes con becas y eventos multiculturales con escuelas y estudiantes enseñando el baile y la música Latina. Estamos orgullosos de enseñarle al pueblo de Woodstock como dos culturas pueden trabajar juntas con respeto y liderazgo. En 2018 y 2019, patrocinamos candidatas Latinas para el concurso de Señorita Woodstock y se llevaron la corona por dos años consecutivos. El futuro es brillante, te invitamos a ser miembro y ser parte de nuestra historia exitosa. Ser parte de esta fuerza de líderes requiere un compromiso a algo más grande que tu mismo y necesitamos tu dedicación y ser esa voz para la comunidad de Woodstock y el condado de McHenry.

Hispanic Connections is a group that was born from a vision of Hispanic businesses connecting to network, support one another, grow individually and collectively, and give back to our community. We connected with incredible leaders in the community that saw our potential, believed in each other and put their leadership to work to benefit not only our businesses but much more, a community in need of a voice. We are creating a place for the Hispanic community to express itself and integrate with the population of McHenry County. Hispanic Connections is not only a networking group where business come to meet, integrate, and support each other, looking to grow via referrals but it has become a force and voice of a community that is eager to integrate, lead and be heard. Hispanic Connections is truly a networking and service group. We have created events like the annual Mexican Indepen-
