    Historic Info: From Illinois Digital Archives (info from the Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society and the Cook Memorial Public Library)--"The staff of the Libertville Hotel poses for a picture in front of their patriotically decorated establishment. The Libertyville Hotel was located on the southwest corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Church Street. According to a description in Libertyville Illustrated, "This house was opened by E. C. Tillotson and James W. Furney. Mr. Tillotson had previously had two years experience in the hotel business in Deefield, Lake county. Being located on the famous Waukegan century course, it is much patronized by cyclists. A livery stable is maintained in connection with the hotel and conveyances furnished guests and others who wish to visit any of the neighboring lakes or view the charming scenery surrounding the town."
