Who We Are
James Anderson Company established the Lake County Land Survey Company in 1984 as a subsidiary of its civil engineering and land surveying firm that was founded in 1845. Fourth-generation family business owner James G. Anderson has served as the company's president since 1992. Over the years, he has become widely known and recognized for his meticulous attention to detail and tremendous local knowledge.
Lake County Land Survey Company holds a unique position among land survey firms in northern Illinois with its ability to take advantage of over one hundred years of the James Anderson Company’s proprietary survey records. These records include a vast number of the earliest Lake County private and municipal surveyor records. While all surveyors are charged with "following in the footsteps of previous surveyors," our extensive archives allow us to follow an enormous variety of footsteps, including those long thought to have vanished.
Lake County Land Survey has further built upon this vast library of surveying records by continuing to provide multifaceted professional surveying services throughout southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. We find that these records are vital when property owners, developers, title firms, attorneys, or municipalities encounter survey difficulties thought to be unsolvable. There is likely no more comprehensive resource for those seeking survey and title information in northern Illinois.
