    Illinois was created as a territory in 1809, but, its importance to the emerging United States brought it to statehood in 1818 as the 21st state. The first explorers of the area came in 1673. With the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825, people flocked to the new state and with them came industry and agriculture. In the 1840’s Cyrus McCormick built an agricultural implements factory and the area grew by leaps and bounds.

    In 1865 Illinois became the first state to ratify the 13th Amendment to the Constitution which abolished slavery.

    Illinois is bounded by Michigan, Lake Michigan and Wisconsin on the north, Iowa and Missouri on the west, Kentucky on the south and Indiana on the east. Due to its excellent location on the southwest shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago became a major port providing supplies for people moving further west.

    Today the capital is Springfield which is close to the center of the state. The largest cities are Chicago, Rockford and Peoria. Due to the huge beef and hog farms in the area, Chicago has become one of the leaders in the meat packing industry. Illinois is also on the leading edge of oil production, industrial implements and machinery and computer equipment. Its location has also made Chicago a major airport and railroad center. Most of us have at one time or another been affected by the Chicago weather shutting down O’Hare Airport and planes all over the country had to be re-routed.

    People tend to think of Illinois as mostly metropolitan, yet, it is a leading producer of soybeans and corn!

    Our 40th President, Ronald Reagan was born in Illinois.

    A few interesting facts: Des Plaines, Illinois is the home of the first McDonalds. Chicago’s Public Library is the world’s largest. Every St. Patrick’s Day, the Chicago River is dyed green. Nabisco which is the maker of cookies and crackers has the world’s largest factory in Chicago. The Sears Tower in Chicago is the tallest building in the continental United States.

    From excellent camping and nature opportunities to the opera to museums and world class cooking schools to water sports and year around activities, Illinois is certainly a state to visit.

    The state animal is the White-tailed deer, the state bird is the Cardinal, the state flower is the Illinois Native (purple) Violet, and it' s state tree is the White oak.
