Information about Lincolnshire

The village of Lincolnshire, Illinois, had a population of 7,292, based on 2014 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. Median household income from 2010-2014 was $111,250. The area around Lincolnshire was once home to the Potawatomi Indians, a tribe whose name means 'fire keepers.'

The village of Lincolnshire prides itself on preserving its wooded areas. Various parks in the town border a nature preserve. In an effort to intermingle daily life with nature, Lincolnshire has laid a number of pathways that lead through its wooded areas and connect its different neighborhoods. Residents cycle and stroll and enjoy the surrounding woods on the paths. The village also boasts a major resort with a golf course and live performance venues.

Higher Education

Lincolnshire doesn't host any postsecondary educational institutions, but the greater Chicago metropolitan area is one of the nation's foremost centers of higher learning. Northwestern University is in nearby Evanston, while the city of Chicago's South Side is home to the University of Chicago. Other schools in the region include the University of Illinois at Chicago, DePaul University and Trinity International University.

Economy and Employment

Residents can easily commute to downtown Chicago for work, where the major industries are finance, advertising, banking and insurance. Lincolnshire itself, however, is the headquarters for Aon Hewitt, a global outsourcing company. The village also houses the Lincolnshire Corporate Center, a corporate campus of Walgreens, Lincolnshire Business Center, and Millbrook Office Park. Due to these offices and business centers, the daytime population of Lincolnshire swells to 25,000 people, each day.
