ince its beginning, Waukegan has been home to many entertainers including musicians, actors, writers and visual artists as well as venues that have entertained generations of residents and visitors alike. Waukegan is part of the early motion history, explained Ty Rohrer, museum supervisor for the Waukegan Historical Society. A local inventor, Edward Amet, was among many around the world at the turn of the century who raced to be the first to develop the first motion picture camera. His invention, called the magnascope, was a camera and projector, and because it was lightweight, he was able to share his movies around the country. “He never put a patent on his device, but he is recognized in the way he started to make movies,” Rohrer said. “He ventured away from using his camera as a way to just record natural events, and he was actually using actors and actresses and then later sets with models, making his own scenes and making his own movies.” One of the short movies he made was a comedy featuring two women who wore dresses while boxing. Believed to be the first actresses cast in a movie, one was Bess Bower Dunn, whose name will be recognized as the Lake County Discovery Museum is renamed. The other was Isabelle Spoor, the daughter of George Spoor, who went on to found S&A Studios in Chicago, the most famous of silent film companies of that time. The Spoor family also built the Academy Theater in 1916, the first theater in Waukegan built solely for showing motion pictures. Waukegan, at one time, had 40 theaters. The premiere entertainment venue is the Genesee Theatre, which was built in 1927 by businessmen Al Brumund, HC Burnett and DT Webb.

The cost to see a show at the Genesee Theater when it first opened was 60 cents. “This is where all the people were. These theaters wouldn’t have been built and the groups wouldn’t have come if they didn’t think there were people to fill the seats,” Rohrer said. Waukegan hosted many performers such as musicians like Benny Goodman and Gene Autry; unusual performers such as Moro “The Human Icicle,” who was frozen in a cake of ice; and more recently David Copperfield, Loretta Lynn and the Everly Brothers. But one of the most well-known performances was in 1939 when hometown legend Jack Benny held the world premiere of his movie “Man About Town” at the Genesee Theatre. “At that time period, Waukegan was Hollywood,” Rohrer said. The unique thing about Benny, who was raised in Waukegan and lived there until age 18, was he never forget where he came from.

“Everybody about the country was tuning into his radio show and later his television show, and people around the country got to know Waukegan because he talked about it quite often,” said Rohrer, who added Benny’s last appearance in Waukegan was as a guest performer for the first-ever performance of the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra. Another well-known hometown artist is Ray Bradbury, whose writings often conveyed stories of his childhood. One of his stories, “Green Town” has many references to Waukegan using pseudonyms. The community has later recognized him by creating a Bradbury walk, where guests take a walking tour through the city and stop at sites important to the artist’s life and writings. Waukegan has become known as a spot where filmmakers come to film their movies. Over 50 movies as well as several television shows, have been filmed here, including “The Blues Brothers,” “Groundhog Day,” “Batman Begins” and most recently, “Chicago Fire.”

Waukegan also has been home to talented visual artists. Born in Waukegan in 1860, Kate Cory later moved to live near the Hopi Indians to capture them in photos and paintings to show how these seclusive people lived. Known as one of the southwest United States greatest artists, Cory is honored by the Waukegan Arts Council who presents the Kate Cory Award to a local artist.

Today, many local artists are not only bringing a better education of art to the community, but also showcasing a city filled with many different cultural backgrounds, and celebrating those cultures. Examples include the mariachi bands at the elementary and middle schools within Waukegan School District 60 and the Waukegan Tamburitzan, a dance organization formed in 1972 to promote Croatian heritage.

Known for his charcoal drawings, pencil drawings and watercolor, Phil Austin is among artists recognized at the Waukegan Walk of Stars along Sheridan Road, Rohrer added. Austin’s daughter recently presented to the Waukegan Public Library slides featuring her father’s work.

“These dance groups are an opportunity to teach the new generations, those born in Waukegan who may not have background of the homeland, but can be taught the traditions of their predecessors,” Rohrer said.

The city began a recent movement to recognize local artists and help revitalize its downtown with the start of the Art Wauk, a monthly event since 2011. Each month, a property owner gives keys to a retail space to an ArtWauk artist, who turns the space into a professional gallery, recruiting more artists and hanging a show.

Waukegan continues to also celebrate and share the arts through work by the Waukegan Park District, which offers music, dance, art and theater programs as well as offers opportunities to see local performances such as the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra, Waukegan Concert Chorus and Bowen Park Theatre Company. The community also showcases the arts through community festivals. One is is the annual Ray

Bradbury Dandelion Wine Fine Arts Festival, which has been held the first Saturday in June since 2001. The free event features music and entertainment stages, fine arts display and family activities. “We’re trying to showcase the local talent both in visual arts but also with music, with dance, and we do a pretty good job at that,” Rohrer said.

Residential Living


eaturing homes that attract a variety of price points and style preferences and offering a lakefront view and growing artistic environment, Waukegan offers a great place to call home. A lifelong Lake County resident and a properties broker, Marty Golden has lived in Waukegan for 20 years. He said what draws many to Waukegan is its proximity to Lake Michigan, the community environment and the opportunity for affordable housing, whether it be a mid-century ranch, Victorian style home, vintage farmhouse or a bungalow. Another great asset to living in Waukegan, he noted, is the up-and-coming arts and theater district. There’s the smaller community theater, the Three Brothers Theatre as well as the Genesee Theatre, which offers weekly headline acts. “A lot of people are moving in from other areas that want an up-and-coming arts and theater district, and we offer that in Waukegan with the various art galleries and the Art Wauk, which takes place every third Saturday of the month. It’s been a very positive impact,” he said. “There’s very creative art displays. You get a chance to meet local artists and see their talented work and actually buy some of it,” he added. Positive changes that also are bringing residents to Waukegan are the completion of the Waukegan Harbor clean-up, as well as future plans to develop the lakefront. Golden said his hope for future residential growth will be along the lakefront.


ILWAUCW17 design.indd 12


6/16/2017 1:32:47 PM

Golden explained the city features entry-level price points for first-time home buyers, priced about $119,000. There also are affordable townhomes, which are priced near $129,000 where in other Lake County markets may cost $180,000. “I’m seeing a trend of younger people, millennials who grew up in Waukegan, graduated, went away to college and are now in the workforce and they desire to purchase their first home in Waukegan where they grew up. I’m seeing a lot of that,” he said. Golden said he’s also seen a couple higher priced home sales within the past year sold near $390,000 and $425,000, which is unusual for Waukegan. “It’s encouraging to see some higher dollar ticket items locally,” Golden said. “There is more stability with the market.”

Golden said he and many who come to live in Waukegan choose it as well for the love of the older homes, a historic gem along Sheridan Road. He recalls the first home he bought was a wood-framed Victorian from 1900, and then moved to one of the city’s historic landmarks built in 1853, a Gothic revival. He currently lives in a 1926 Georgian. “In order for me to duplicate this type of home that I have in another community such as Lake Forest or Lake Bluff, it would cost over $1 million,” Golden said. “And I was able to acquire it in Waukegan at around the $200,000 price point.” There’s also a large assortment of homes for those who want to renovate. Golden said he knows from personally shopping at the hardware store in Waukegan, many building supplies are often sold out as so many are completing renovations to their homes.

“There is so much renovation going on, which is great. It brings the property values up, and it revitalizes the neighborhoods,” he said.

Well initiative focusing on reducing cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity and diabetes has resulted in the free Go Waukegan program. empowering residents to improve their overall health through the simple act of walking. A Vista Health System partnership delivers free educational programs and health screenings year-round and rehabilitative therapies at the Aquatic Center. The Waukegan Parks Foundation raises funds to provide every second-grade student in Waukegan a field trip to the Field House for a water safety and swim lesson, climbing lesson, physical activities and a healthy meal. A grant from North Shore Gas provides a free introductory starter SwimSmart class for ages 6 and 7 that focuses on water safety and being comfortable in the water. Waukegan residents have opportunities to learn pursue their favorite sports and recreational

pastimes at the Waukegan Park District. The Waukegan SportsPark opened in 2011, centralizing adult and youth outdoor soccer and softball. The award-winning facility contains 13 natural turf sports fields, one artificial turf championship field and four softball fields that accommodate Waukegan teams while attracting regional and national tournaments. Two golf courses attract Waukegan residents and golfers from neighboring communities. Parks throughout the community provide opportunities to play softball, basketball, tennis and other sports. COMMUNITY EVENTS AND PROGRAMS Families are the heart of Waukegan, and there is something for everyone at the park district from community-wide events, such as the Jan. 1 Polar Bear Plunge, Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine Fine Arts Festival, American Independence Day Parade and Festival, Halloweenfest COMMUNITY RESOURCE GUIDE

million restoration project is underway in Bowen Park as a partnership with Waukegan Harbor Citizen’s Advisory Group and grants from the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

The district reaches out to its community with a variety of free programs in neighborhood and community parks, such as Bowen Blues, Music at Washington Park, Arts Park, Movies in the Park, Parks and Play and the Tanabata Festival.

One of the oldest parks, Roosevelt Park, has undergone many changes to make it more environmentally friendly. The lagoon was transformed into a wetland to remove pollution and reduce sediment moving downstream into Lake Michigan. Permeable pavers in the parking lot and the rain garden also reduce pollution. The loop path system and boardwalk promotes walking through the park. The signage in the park won the Illinois Society of Landscape Architects Merit Award.

An annual “free for all’ during the Christmas and New Year’s school holiday provides the community with free days and programs at the Field House in addition to the free, year-round daily walking times, popular with seniors. Throughout the year, the district provides special interest, recreation, health, wellness, nature and cultural programs that are free and benefit residents of all ages. CONSERVATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Conservation and environmental stewardship are the heart of the Waukegan Park District. More than 100 years ago, citizens began to realize that Waukegan’s beautiful and diverse natural areas were being lost and threatened as the city was growing. After the park district was formed in 1916, the first commissioners acquired lands of great natural beauty to preserve them for future generations to enjoy, Washington and Roosevelt parks. In 1931, Bonnie Brook Golf course was purchased at the urging of the community who


ILWAUCW17 design.indd 15

to preserve the land from development. Bonnie Brook is rated as one of the best public 19-hole golf courses in the region. In 1963, Bowen Park was purchased and continues to be one of Waukegan’s prized jewels with its spectacular playground, Grosche Field, Lilac Cottage, Waukegan History Museum, Jack Benny Center for the Arts, Jane Addams Center, Children’s Garden and the Morrison Picnic Center. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. A $1.5

Most recently, the district has responded to the devastation of ash trees in its parks by the Emerald Ash Borer with a management plan that supported the removal of affected trees and planting of replacements. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE In this Centennial Year, the Waukegan Park District is looking to the future by planning new facilities for Belvidere Park. It is celebrating its first 100 years with a parade and community festival on July 2, 2017, which will include a time capsule burial and planting 100 Centennial trees.

rtWauk, a monthly explosion of the tactical application of the arts, contributes to the cultural education and artistic appreciation in Waukegan, while helping the economic development of the downtown. Every month, different artwork, artists and spaces are involved, challenging the community to understand art in all its forms. This grassroots event transforms from one month to the next, sometimes following a theme – such as honoring veterans and active military – and more often being as individualistic as the artists themselves. Galleries participating in ArtWauk have hosted internationally, nationally and locally known artists who work in a variety of media with diverse themes. Internationally known contemporary visual artist Trevor Bell’s warehouse-sized abstracts were featured in Urban Edge Gallery. Sculptor Bruce Niemi, whose works appear throughout the United States, was integral to exhibit entitled “Texture.” A curated show from the Richard Harris Art Collection attracted first time visitors to Waukegan, including families in town for graduation at Naval Station Great Lakes, art enthusiasts from Chicago and Milwaukee, and Genesee Theatre patrons who made a point of arriving early specifically to see the exhibit. Original works by Rembrandt, Toulouse-Lautrec, van Ultrect, Albrecht Dürer, Jasper Johns, Marcos Raya and Robert Mapplethorpe were among the museum quality pieces featured in the exhibit. Because of the importance and nature of this exhibit, the gallery was open

specific days every week to maximize its availability to visitors. ART EVOLUTION Locally revered artists, such as Maggie Schwarz Kraus and Skip Wiese were at the start of the art evolution in Waukegan decades ago and continue to be active in the art revolution. Dandelion Gallery partnered with both Swingline and Waukegan Tire on separate exhibits that used materials from those corporations in their

works. Dandelion Gallery also supports young artists through a high school gallery show and a scholarship program. The Mic in the Karcher Artspace holds spoken word showcases monthly and experiments with pairing performance and visual arts. Karcher 405 Gallery developed a show celebrating Black History Month entitled “Black [N][V][Adj]”, featuring a film, roundtable discussions, physical art and culinary art centered on the African-American experience in the United States.

Live performances and pop-up galleries round out the offerings during this cooperative art experience. On any given ArtWauk night, Jerry Seinfeld may be making people laugh at the Genesee Theatre, Three Brothers Theatre may be showcasing the world premiere of an upand-coming playwright, and punk bands may be at The Burgundy Room – within blocks of each other. Outdoor pop-up galleries featuring photographs of lost architectural wonders or traditional Dia de Muertes sugar add to the offerings and the diverse flavor of the exhibits. These temporary, pop-up galleries are often stepping stones for new artists to become part of the art scene, at times leading to a permanent bricks-and-mortar space. The original concept of the ArtWauk was to fill vacant properties to improve the perception of the downtown neighborhood. The ultimate goal was to make available spaces vibrant enough to recruit viable businesses, creating local jobs, broadening the tax base and improving the overall quality of life in Waukegan. On Waukegan’s birthday, February 23, in 2002, Mayor Dan Drew and other visionaries supported the first ArtWauk.

In February 2011, a team consisting of artists, volunteers, city staff and Waukegan Main Street staff coordinated a grand opening for Dinosaur Studio Tattoo and the new office for Illinois State Representative Rita Mayfield. On the same block. On the same day. Organizers and business owners alike were thrilled to see people from every walk of life come downtown for the free event and to celebrate new doors opening. Six years on, they are both still a vibrant part of the arts community and their neighbor, Family Piano Co., has expanded to include additional lesson rooms and a performance space as more people become keenly aware of the documented benefits of arts and music. The success of this model has been remarkable. Thanks to cooperation from forward-thinking property owners, the team renovated space for six new businesses to open on one block of South Genesee Street. The basic model was put into play by these steps: a property owner shares keys to a small retail space with an ArtWauk artist. The artist rallies volunteers to paint walls, scrub the windows and floors, replace lighting and turn the space into a

professional gallery, recruiting more artists and hanging a show. The volunteer force would be the basis of the marketing machine, distributing and posting flyers and utilizing social media to draw people to the grand opening. The return on investment for the property owners was hundreds of people walking through their available facilities and seeing the spaces in the best possible light. Every one of the six original spaces has been rented to a paying tenant. The years of monthly ArtWauks have energized and positively changed Waukegan’s downtown. Property owners have enjoyed renewed interest in their buildings; business owners reap the rewards of more foot traffic; artists delight in additional spaces to exhibit; and the overall perception of downtown has dramatically improved. City spokesman David Motley, an artist and one of the event organizers, was quoted in the Lake County News-Sun: “Waukegan is known as that destination to come experience art. We’re able to enjoy five years of success and five years of a good reputation. People have expectations when they come to ArtWauk that are really high.” ArtWauk continues to evolve with the times, with the art, and with the community.


When the historic Genesee Theatre re-opened in 2005, focus shifted to programming the

city’s new investment and away from the organic grassroots model. While several ArtWauks took place, it wasn’t until 2011 that the event became monthly.

aukegan provides excellent learning opportunities for its students at the elementary, high school and college level. One way that Waukegan is providing this excellent education is by continuing to explore and make continuous improvements to better serve the Waukegan community. A new superintendent, Theresa Plascencia, is bringing innovative ideas to Waukegan School District 60 to provide exceptional educational opportunities. The largest district in Lake County, Waukegan District 60, serves about 17,000 pre-K through 12th-grade students. Nicholas Alajakis, chief of staff at Waukegan School District 60, explained one of the changes the district will implement this summer will be offering a free summer school program to kindergarten through eighth grade students. The idea came listening to parents, who are eager to find more summer opportunities for their children. It also will help students progress in their learning. “This is helping students to prepare for the next grade and to give them enriching curriculum in English, math and STEM fields, to bring some robust programs to these students during the summer when that summer loss often takes hold,” he said.

focus on getting them on track when they first come to our high school,” Alajakis said. The district includes 24 buildings, and many of these also have received or will receive a little makeover. Among the completed improvements was equipping five buildings with full air conditioning.

Some exciting changes coming next school year will be providing across the district an all-day kindergarten and restructuring the high schools: All freshmen and sophomore students will attend the Brookside campus, and juniors and seniors will go to the Washington campus.

Putting a priority on getting technology in students’ hands, Alajakis noted next year the district will be beefing up its one-to-one initiative, providing a device such as a Chromebook in every high school and middle school students’ hands.

“We think this will allow us to give more grade specific support to our students so we can really

“Technology is the future. The way students are learning today is changing monthly, not just

every year,” Alajakis said. “We have to stay on top of it, and we have to be sure the resources we’re giving our students are state of the art and that our students are learning to be leaders and learners for the future.” Alajakis said their goal is taking a close look at how the district can better serve the Waukegan community. So far, the district is receiving positive feedback, excited with its direction and a better understanding because the community is taking part in the decisions. “There is excitement for the future and the direction we’re going in, and we’re happy to see that because we want people to buy in and we want people to get involved,” he said. “That is how you push the school district forward. When you have a strong public school district, it leads to a stronger community.” The College of Lake County Lakeshore Campus in downtown Waukegan offers all the benefits of the main College of Lake County campus but on a smaller scale. The campus provides a full range of academic choices, including all of the college’s associate degree options and several certificate programs. Lakeshore also offers GED and English as a Second Language courses as well as non-credit continuing education for personal enrichment.

The Cuban Experience provides a warm and family-like environment. Come to enjoy a cigar, lounge in comfy leather chairs and enjoy a game on the large TVs. Free Wi-Fi is available.

Founded in 2014, Heart of the City inspires children to be competitive on the field, successful in school and productive in their community. The charitable organization coupled its existing recreation league with the nationally-recognized North Central United travel club two years ago. The two programs now exist side by side, further increasing access to year-round soccer opportunities and the invaluable life lessons that they provide. ZÜMBIER 3232 W. Monroe Ave., Waukegan ZümBier is the first brewery in Waukegan since 1916 when Besleys Waukegan Brewing shut its doors. Founders Larry and Talea Bloom were looking for a career change and a diverse community to host their dream to make beer in a craft beer deprived city.

A CUBAN EXPERIENCE, LLC 119 N. Genesee St., Waukegan A Cuban Experience began as a group of friends, cigar aficionados and boaters, who would meet in the summer at Waukegan Harbor on beautiful Lake Michigan to enjoy cigars and share boating stories. What started as a summertime dock event quickly stretched into the off-boating season. They continued to share their love of cigars with one another and before they knew it, they had formed a social smoking group that continued to grow in size. A few members have had the privilege of touring manufacturing sites in Honduras, and three years ago went to Cuba to visit Havana and the famous Robaina plantation. Over time, their cigar knowledge and experience grew into rolling cigars for their personal enjoyment. They invested in a rolling machine, molds and a cigar press. They quickly learned the best blends to combine and also which ones not to combine. Their passion for a quality cigar drove their desire to bring a one-of-a-kind to downtown Waukegan. They are currently in the application process to gain a federal manufacturing license so they can share their unique blends with others. A Cuban Experience opened in July 2016. The 6,000-square-foot cigar lounge and retail shop is located in the heart of downtown Waukegan, in a historic building on Genesee Street, just steps from the historic Genesee Theatre in the Art and Theatre District. They are committed to growing this area of Waukegan and supporting their fellow local businesses: all furnishings were bought at

HEART OF THE CITY 218 N. Genesee Rd., Waukegan Soccer is not only a popular sport, but it is also a powerful pathway to youth development. Studies show that young people who play organized soccer are more likely than their counterparts to graduate, attend college and obtain degrees. In addition, young people who participate in soccer often possess a greater capacity for empathy because they learn and grow through moments of success and failure. They also share a more defined connection to the local community because of the way soccer brings friends, families and neighborhoods together.

Since producing the first batch of Hootch #5 their dream has changed and grown with what fueled the local community’s thirst. Today ZümBier has a taproom that serves “innovation biers” alongside traditional German and European styles. “We take the best of our heritage and mix in the freedom of American, ethnic and culinary flavors and ingredients,” Larry said. “We love Waukegan and having a place to welcome all of our friends and neighbors. Everyone is treated like family here,” Talea added. The taproom is open five days a week, is pet and family friendly and encourages carry-in or delivery food to increase customers’ enjoyment. Hours and special events are available online at or zumbier.

Unfortunately, not every family can afford to have their child join a soccer team. In fact, many children in Lake County face economic barriers that prevent participation. Heart of the City, a Waukegan-based nonprofit organization, is focused on increasing access to high-quality soccer experiences for this underserved community and leveraging those activities to change the trajectory of young lives throughout the region. Services are aimed at kids who normally would not have the opportunity to play soccer. COMMUNITY RESOURCE GUIDE
