Lemont Real Estate Listings and Information


Settled in 1836, and incorporated in 1873, historic Lemont is one of the oldest and most unique communities in northeastern Illinois. With rolling hills and three waterways providing a scenic view, Lemont offers a peaceful atmosphere unique to the Chicagoland area.

Lemont's colorful early history began in the late 1830s with the construction of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, and with the influx of immigrant workers who settled and remained. By the mid 1800s, limestone quarrying became the big business in Lemont and was the main cause of the town's growth. Many fine local examples of buildings constructed with Lemont limestone still exist, including the Historic Chicago Water Tower landmark on Michigan Avenue.

 A close knit community with a rich history, Lemont is home to 16,000 residents. Lemont is also an affluent and well educated community, with median household incomes far above the state average.

 Lemont is known for its farmer’s market and annual festivals: Heritage Fest and Keepataw Days, which take place in the summer months.
