    Historic Info: From Illinois Digital Archives (information provided by the Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society and Cook Memorial Public Library): "This brick building on west Church Street was built in 1917 after the original wooden structure (the Union Church) was destroyed by fire earlier in the year. St. Lawrence Episcopal Church was founded in 1908. The congregation began meeting in the Union Church in 1910 and they purchased the building in 1912."
