Mettawa (pronounced “met-OW-uh” by residents) is a small village of approximately 400 people. Extending one mile east to west and about four miles north to south, Mettawa is east of Vernon Hills and Libertyville, west of Lake Forest, south of Green Oaks and north of Lincolnshire, bordered by forest preserves on several sides which provide ample opportunities for biking and hiking.
Mettawa has a small amount of office and business park space but no retail enterprises within its borders.
The village was incorporated in 1960. There is a Village Trustee and a part-time village clerk.
