The Village of Bannockburn, located approximately 30 miles north of the City of Chicago, Illinois was incorporated in 1929 by Scottish Architect and Builder, William Aitken, whose planned community of “country estates” covered 110 acres.
While much has changed since the founding of the Village, Bannockburn has remained true to the original vision of Mr. Aitken and his first master plan. Today, Bannockburn remains a refreshing island of “country estates” within the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Bannockburn has been able to maintain its identity and character only through a tenacious adherence to sound land-planning principles and its dedication to the preservation of its woodlands.
Although nestled between major transportation arteries, Bannockburn supplies a rural atmosphere of natural landscapes and open space that provides a much needed contrast to the surrounding metropolitan area.
