“In 1955 developer Roger Ladd promoted Lincolnshire. It began as a subdivision of 280 acres divided into half acre lots and then incorporated in 1957. From the start, this community was marketed to those who were relatively wealthy. These homeowners were attracted to the rolling, wooded landscape along the Des Plaines River. This was a very quiet residential community and remained so into the 1980’s.
In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, issues related to the management of growth took over village politics. Lincolnshire was very cautious. The village refused to annex two business park developments in the mid 1980’s. Critics noted that the village had to contend with increased traffic resulting from developments in neighboring communities and watch as the new tax revenues went to the other villages. Finally, Lincolnshire did acquire its own commercial developments. Beginning in 1983, a Marriott Lincolnshire Resort was built near the 300 acre Lincolnshire Corporate Center. Then in 1993, a new Village Hall was built.
Lincolnshire was a village that had no center or downtown area. In the mid 1990’s trustees began working to develop a downtown anchored by a movie theater and retail and office space. In the year 2000 there were two or more cars in most households, and only 1% of residents that said they lived below poverty level.”
