Recreational opportunities abound in Lemont with thousands of acres of adjacent forest preserves, wildlife areas, golf courses, local parks and an extensive trail for hiking, running and biking along the historic I & M Canal.
The charm of Lemont continues to survive as a living legacy to be enjoyed by families already living here and families who will one day call Lemont home.
Lemont’s history begins in 1832 with the first settlers. These early pioneers came here to work on the canal. A fine grade of limestone was discovered while digging the canal. The quarry and canal industries attracted many immigrant groups to Lemont.
The Lemont Legends Cruise Nights is recognized as one of the largest and best car shows in the area. This event attracts hundreds of visitors and participants to Downtown Lemont every week.
Lemont Chamber of Commerce, Lemont, Illinois
The historic Village of Lemont combines the look and feel of the past and a progressive eye toward the future. The hilly tree lined landscape dotted with church steeples reminds visitors of a quaint New England town. The Lemont area is abundant with recreational and leisure opportunities for the whole family.
