The largest city in McHenry County, Crystal Lake has a growing population last estimated to be just a bit over 40,000 in 2010. The city itself gains its name from the Crystal Lake located just a bit from the city’s downtown. The name for the lake came from a settler in the 1830s who remarked that the “water were as clear as crystal.” The settlement originally called Crystal Ville, but in less than a decade had changed its name to Crystal Lake.
The city is home to three high schools: Crystal Lake Central High School, Crystal Lake South High School, and Prarie Ridge High School. As might be imagined, there is a bit of a rivalry between these schools, but it has always remained friendly and encouraged each to do better.
For those commuting into Chicago for work or fun, the Metra Rail Union Pacific Northwest Line is quite handy.
