See virtual map of the campus.
The campus was completed in 1921 and the same buildings are still being maintained. Joseph McCarthy designed the campus with all the design details being hand drawn. There has been very little change to the campus over the years although former orchards around the lake are no longer maintained and a portion of the property is in a long term lease to Pine Meadows Golf Course. The 105-acre St. Mary's Lake is the centerpiece of the property. It was created sometime between 1915 and 1920 by damming Bull Creek.
Any questions contact Chair Kathleen O'Connor at 847.816.6800 or email@example.com or Patty Werner at 847.377.7717 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Held Thursdays at the Libertyville Township Center, 1 - 3 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

This meeting’s program focused on transportation improvement projects in the watershed. IDOT representatives provided an update the Route 21 project currently being constructed and the study that is underway to plan improvements to the Route 83/137 corridor. Both corridors include stream crossings of Bull Creek/Bull’s Brook. See the map of road projects in the watershed with the IDOT roadway corridors highlighted.
