Winthrop Harbor


Although Winthrop Harbor was intended for industrial development, the community remained primarily rural and residential throughout the twentieth century. There are few multiunit dwellings in Winthrop Harbor, the vast majority being single-family, detached homes. Winthrop Harbor has the distinction of being the northeasternmost point in Illinois. While J. H. Van Vlissingen made plans for development in 1883, Winthrop Harbor was not platted until 1899, when the Winthrop Harbor and Dock Company assumed ownership of more than two thousand acres.
