Photo gallery: A history of Antioch

First settled by Pottawatomi Indians in the early 1800s, Antioch still bears Native American influences such as arrowheads and Indian trails along its highways. The Gage brothers permanently settled Antioch along Sequoit Creek and the village thrived around a sawmill built in 1839. During the late 1800s, Antioch became a tourism hub, enticing visitors with hunting, dancing and gambling. One of Antioch's most famous residents was Al Capone, who owned a summer home on Bluff Lake. The village continues to grow, nearly doubling its population to nearly 15,000 in the last 15 years.
