Elkhart, IL

Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway

Rich in history and natural beauty, Elkhart is famous for its unusual landscape - a tree covered hill that rises 777 feet above sea level, surrounded by a horizon of flat Illinois prairie land. Settled in 1855, Lincoln and Lincoln-era political figures populate Elkhart’s history.

The picturesque early 1900’s style downtown, two historic cemeteries, and one of only two privately owned arched bridges in the state of Illinois make Elkhart one of a kind.
