The city of Waukegan, Illinois, is the county seat of Lake County and is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, just 8 miles south of Wisconsin. It began life after Jacques Marquette stopped there in 1673 and was a French trading post. The Potawatomi word for "trading post" or "fort" is Waukegan.
