Wauconda is located in the southeastern part of Wauconda Township on the banks of a beautiful little lake which has from earliest times been known as Bangs Lake, named in honor of Justus and Mark Bangs, the 1st settlers of the place. The Town of Wauconda was organized in the year of 1849, by a vote of the people of the County to divide said County into towns. There were 1,695 votes cast and all except 3 were in favor of the division. Today, Wauconda has a thriving business community with a unique mix of retailers, service providers, and industry. The Village’s elected officials and administrative staff take a proactive approach to economic development through teamwork and streamlined services.
Beautiful Bangs Lake continues to offer a variety of recreational activities such as swimming, fishing, and boating. Historic buildings and tree-lined streets offer an escape from the bustle of everyday life.
