Willow Springs, IL (531 words)
Known for its ravines, much of what is now Willow Springs is known to geologists as Mt. Forest Island, a large upland moraine left by ice age glaciers thousands of years ago.
The Joliet and Chicago railroad arrived after 1854, and Willow Springs became a favorite picnic place for Chicagoans, who flocked to “Lake Willow Springs” (actually a five-hundred-foot-wide section of the Des Plaines River) toting “multitudinous kegs of beer,” according to one source.
Willow Springs developed a reputation as a place with numerous saloons, and the onset of Prohibition in 1920 did little to curb the liquor trade.
