Overview of Gurnee
Gurnee, Illinois, had a total population of 31,295 in 2010, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. This bustling village and modern Chicago suburb is located about halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee and is conveniently located off Interstate 94. Home to Gurnee Mills Mall and Six Flags Great America, this once-small town has used its entertainment options and modern amenities to attract a booming population throughout the last few decades.
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Gurnee served as a stage stop for those traveling between Chicago and Milwaukee. The historic Mother Rudd Home, once called "Marm Rudd's Tavern," was once a popular destination for traveling merchants and farmers.
Nowadays, Gurnee's charms are a bit less provincial. Though the Mother Rudd Home has been restored and many old buildings still dot the historic area, Gurnee is known more for its shopping malls and chain restaurants than its old historic inns.
