About Lemont, Illinois.
Located in Cook, DuPage, and Will Counties, Lemont is home to over 15,000 residents. Established in 1836, Lemont was an ideal location to settle thanks to the presence of the nearby Des Plaines River. Thanks to the construction of the Illinois and Michigan Canal in 1848, numerous settlers came to work either on the canal or at one of the many businesses that sprung up thanks to the canal.
During the canals establishment, workers discovered Lemont yellow dolomite, a variation of limestone that led Lemont to become a quarrying town as well.
