Historic and Beautiful Village

The Village of Algonquin offers rolling hills that nestle along the beautiful Fox River. Known as the Gem of the Fox River, Algonquin started as a quiet village where people would escape from the density of the city to experience the beauty and elegance of Algonquin.

Algonquin's association with "High Quality" can be traced back over 100 years. The Village is known for its famous "Algonquin Hill Climb", in which early enthusiasts and car companies alike would prove their automobile's quality by driving up the steep hills in the early 1920's and 30's.
