Unveiling the Outdoor Exhibit for the Courthouse Cornerstone

  • Waukegan History Museum 1917 N. Sheridan Rd. Waukegan, IL, 60087 USA (map)

Join us as we unveil the corner- stone of the old Lake County Courthouse in a new outdoor exhibit. This cornerstone—for the second Lake County Courthouse building in Waukegan—was laid by the Waukegan Masonic Fraternity in a ceremony on Thursday, April 18, 1878. In the mid-1960s when the current courthouse building was built, it was preserved by Howard L. Peterson and his daughter has passed it to the Waukegan Historical Society.
