We went down the lane, by the body of the man in black, sodden now from the overnight hail, and broke into the woods at the foot of the hill.

The History of Tower Lakes
The land just east of the Fox River, which now is the Village of Tower Lakes, was covered by glaciers during the last ice age until just 11-12 thousand years ago. Soon after the ice retreated, the area began to be used as prime hunting land by the first of many tribes of Native American Indians. The first people here hunted the woolly Mastodons that roamed Lake County until 8,000 years ago. They were followed by Archaic Indians who made stone tools, and Woodland Indians who were the first farmers in Illinois. Remnants of these ancient cultures have been found along Kelsey Rd. near River Rd. and near Rt. 22. The 11,000 year old artifacts excavated in 1994 & 1996 on the McGraw farm, just west of the Tower Lakes border, are the earliest known evidence of humans in Lake County. In the last 1000 years, several successive Indian groups made this area their home.
