Townships are the oldest form of local government in the country. Brought by settlers from New England, townships were established in Illinois in 1850 to accommodate the needs of their local communities before municipalities were formed and a trip to the county seat meant spending the entire day on horseback.
Cuba Township was established in 1850 at 28160 W. Cuba Road, Barrington, on property owned by the Township and now known as The Grove. This white farmhouse now houses the office of the Cuba Township Road District and is the site of the annual Fall Festival. Cuba Township was originally named Troy Township. When it was discovered that another township in southern Illinois had already chosen that name, “Cuba” was chosen to show solidarity for the citizens in that country enduring an insurrection. The Township encompasses all or part of 8 municipalities, lies in the extreme southwest corner of Lake County, and covers 24 square miles and has 16,800 residents.. There are 18 townships in Lake County.
Illinois townships are mandated to provide 3 services- property assessment, assistance to the needy and road maintenance. Other services, as permissible by law have been added through the years.
