On December 3, 1818 Illinois became the 21st State to enter the Union.
Our celebration of the 200th Anniversary will include many special events as well as “extra polish” on our July 4th observance, Fall Festival and Christmas activities during the first week-end in December.

Please check back often as we will be posting schedules of programs by the Hamilton County Historical Society, area churches, our Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis, Rotary and Unit 10 Schools.
