10 Things to do with Families

Whether you are a visitor or a resident of Stephenson County, I am so pleased that you are here.

Founded in 1837, the county has 14 locations on the National Register of Historic Places, and we are indeed proud to share that history with you. We are eager to share our present and future with you as well and know that you will find so much to enjoy here in Stephenson County. Our area offers so many opportunities for you to dine, stay, and explore, and I encourage you to experience them all! The county is proud of its agricultural roots, and its natural beauty is abundant within many miles of prairie, renowned trails, and numerous rivers and streams. Our natural resources translate into plentiful recreational opportunities throughout Stephenson County’s 565 square miles. Take time to meet residents – our county’s greatest resource. You’ll find them strengthening our community in education, industry, agriculture, government, and retail professions. They work alongside our cities, villages, and townships, in conjunction with the Greater Freeport Partnership every day to enhance and enrich Stephenson County. Our community spirit is evident, and my hope is that it is both obvious and contagious.

I speak for so many when I say that I look forward to welcoming you back often.

Welcoming neighborhoods has been on the forefront of the City of Freeport’s priorities in our strategic plan. From infrastructure improvements, entrepreneurial encouragement, and lively community events, we strive to make Freeport a place to feel welcomed.

What makes our lifestyle in Freeport so unique? With a semi-rural, semi-urban hybrid lifestyle, you won’t feel overwhelmed. Visit our ample green spaces of nature preserves, hiking trails, and community parks to see Northwest Illinois’ natural beauty at play. There’s no better example of beautiful natural resources here in Freeport than Krape Park, highlighted on the cover of this Community Guide.

After you’ve been rejuvenated with fresh air, stop by our multiple shopping districts to hear the hum of local music and enjoy great food. If you’re lucky, you might

just stumble into one of our many community events with wine and beer tastings, classic car shows, BBQ competitions, or brilliant shopping experiences offered by the small businesses of this community.

All of this, paired with a low cost of living makes Freeport an ideal place to invest in your future. Feel assured that when you’re here, you’re considered family.

We’re proud of our strong collaboration with the Greater Freeport Partnership. It means bigger, more exciting opportunities for our citizens and visitors alike to experience career opportunities, community events, shopping, and much more.

Little Cubs Field

Experience big league fun at Little Cubs Field! This faithful replica of Chicago’s famous Wrigley Field pays tribute to a great American team and the great American game. Notice the brick walls, model scoreboard, marquee and left field bleachers when you visit this miniature reproduction. Little Cubs Field opened in 2008 after the community came together to build a place “where grown-ups can be kids, and kids can be grown-ups.” You can reserve the field to have the place to yourself. Don’t forget the bat and balls to hit one over the ivy!

Krape Park Carousel

11th Frame Arcade

A little healthy family competition can create the interaction you need during your trip and the 11th Frame Arcade inside of the 4 Seasons Bowling Center is just the place. Dozens of arcade games are available to win prizes or just offer the opportunity to play together. The arcade is also a great stop on a rainy or cold day when you just need to get out and about.

Krape Park is more than just grand playgrounds, picturesque scenery, a 40-foot waterfall, and outdoor recreation that initially meets the eye. Hidden within these woodsy acres is a wealth of entertainment including a one-of-a-kind antique carousel to bring back the child in all of us. Even if you come for the carousel, make time to play mini golf or frisbee golf, ride the paddleboats, play pickleball and stroll the walking paths all in the same beautiful park. 3

Fishing at Lake Le-Aqua-Na

Kayak Pecatonica River

With more than 15 miles of river trail in Stephenson County, the Pecatonica River flows south from Wisconsin toward the Rock River past many ports for landing. From north to south, paddlers can embark from Winslow, Cedarville Road, Wes Block Landing, Tutty’s Crossing, Freeport VFW and Atten’s Landing all with ramps and some with easy kayak entry. Bring your own kayak or canoe or call to rent from Pec-N-Paddle!

Lake Le-Aqua-Na State Park outside of Lena received a multi-million-dollar makeover in 2021, including major improvements to the lake itself. Now it has been fully restocked and filled for an amazing fishing experience. Bring your gear and enjoy a wonderful traditional pastime with your family. If you have time, be sure to check out the beautiful hiking trails in the park, as well!

The history of Freeport and Stephenson County is comprised of amazing stories of resilience, hard work and perseverance. With most of the region settled by German immigrants in the early nineteenth century, the early days of the region provided prosperity to support expanding entrepreneurs, agriculture production and artistic expression. Today, the monuments and historical spaces denote the people and stories who gave refuge through the Underground Railroad, preserved Native American stories, initiated the social interest movement, and laid the groundwork for a United States President.

The Cedarville Area Historical Society tells the story of the formidable years of Jane Addams, the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize and founder of Hull House. Born to a prosperous agriculture businessman and Illinois State Senator in Cedarville, Addams continued to return to her

birthplace to gain the confidence and strengthen her resolve to pursue social ideals. After her death in 1935, she was laid to rest at the Jane Addams Burial Site in Cedarville.

During his race for Illinois State Senator in 1858, Abraham Lincoln met Stephen A. Douglas for a series of seven debates throughout Illinois. At a stop in Freeport, the second of the debates, Mr. Lincoln used his oratorical prowess to maneuver his opponent Mr. Douglas into admitting he did not support slavery to the degree his Southern constituents would have liked. While Douglas went on to win the race for Illinois State Senator, the division in the Democratic Party caused by the “Freeport Doctrine” would eventually win Lincoln the presidency in 1860. Lincoln Douglas Debate Square commemorates this moment in US history as well as its dedication by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903.

Historic Highway 20

YYou may only know Highway 20 as the US federal highway that runs east-west, nearly unencumbered, through Stephenson County. However, before the Ulysses S. Grant US Highway 20 was constructed to bypass our cities and attractions, travelers used to wind through beautiful scenery and bustling downtowns on Historic US Highway 20.

History of the Highway

Route 20 came to northwest Illinois in 1926 following the adoption of the US Highway System - an effort to have a uniform system of numbering highways. The number 20 signified that it was a transcontinental highway with the “zero” and, since it was an even number, signifies it was an east-west route. Highway 20 followed two previously named auto trails that led from Iowa to Chicago - the AYP (Atlantic Yellowstone & Pacific Highway) and the Grant Highway. Two names that still remain with that route in parts of Freeport and Stephenson County.

The road had already been paved by 1924 to the Jo Daviess County line through Stephenson County and became a popular route for travelers and commercial traffic. However, with the pavement, the route also became dangerous and hazardous as traffic increased. By the 1960s, The construction of interstates 80 and 90 proved to relieve some of the traffic that had used Route 20. Still considered a dangerous section of roadway, a proposal to widen Route 20 in Northwest Illinois was announced in the 1960s and was completed from Rockford to Freeport in 1972. Then the Freeport bypass was constructed from 1985-1988.

The Things you Bypass

While much of the modern four lane exists on the original alignment of 20 to Freeport, old highway 20 follows Business 20 through downtown Freeport. Also known as Galena Avenue, the highway passed industrial and commercial centers, neighborhoods, retailers, gas stations and the core of the community. However, as visitors and travelers seek out these iconic destinations, revitalization and renewal follow.

As Business 20 enters the east side of Freeport, the route is now known as Yellow Creek Road, part of the original alignment of Highway 20. Another detour from the current alignment of existing Highway 20 occurs at West Salem Rd just west of Eleroy. The previous highway traveled north of the train track and traveled through Eleroy.

Historic Route 20 is a national non-profit that aims to raise the profile of the communities and historic sites along the original 1926 alignments of US Route 20. This organization works with communities like Freeport and Eleroy to reclaim the historical treasure that existed when road trips were about the journey, not just the destination. For more information or to plan your trip on Historic US 20, visit historicus20.com

Original Highway 20

mMidwestern weather can be fickle and always a topic of conversation with temperature swings and long bouts of precipitation. However, it’s all about perspective! In Freeport and Stephenson County we have learned to take each season in stride for the opportunities it brings and have suggestions for you to help make the most of your visit in any season.

28 ALL IN. Stephenson County | 2023


After the freeze thaws and snow has melted away, the birds return to their natural surrounds and there are new spaces to explore as they reemerge from winter hibernation. Enjoy the return of colors at Oakdale Nature Preserve and the Butterfly Sanctuary in Orangeville. Spring also signifies the return of events and special features such as Pretzel Fest and Pretzel City Winefest in downtown Freeport and many musical showcases by Highland Community College. The farmer’s markets return in May bringing a freshness to our palate as well. Museums and specialty shops extend from their winter hours and all are welcome to enjoy the returning hours of daylight.


In a region known for outdoor activities, there is always something to do in the summer! Mark your calendars for a number of special events in every small town and attraction. Parks and recreation areas are a great place to meet with friends or enjoy the quiet solitude. We have such an appreciation for the outdoors that we find any opportunity to take the entertainment outside. Many restaurants establish special sections for outdoor dining and live entertainment, concerts move to the Freeport Art Plaza and Krape Park bandshell and special family events fill park shelters. We take advantage of every hour of summer’s light from quiet sunrises to brilliant sunsets.


If you aren’t excited about the heat that often comes with summer, chances are you relish the fall! As school resumes and vacation season comes to an end, the weekends become even busier with events and activities. Be sure to catch the “Cadillac of small town festivals” with Lena Fall Fest the weekend afer Labor Day and the award-winning, Pretzel City Brewfest, at the end of September. The tree-lined streets of Stephenson County cities and towns are vibrant with life and the color of the season.

In a region still heavily enriched with agriculture, fall is not just about a changing season, but also holds hope for a safe and happy harvest season. Stephenson County is a large producer of corn and soybeans as well as pork, beef and dairy. In fact, Stephenson County is the second largest dairy producer in Illinois! While you enjoy the beauty of the changing leaves and cooler temperatures on your skin, you will also witness the hard work of our proud local farmers in vast farm fields and pastures.


The only thing dormant about winter in Freeport and Stephenson County is that bestowed by nature! There is plenty to see and do during the colder months both indoors and outdoors. Holiday shopping never looked and felt so good as supporting locally-owned boutiques and retail shops before settling in for an amazing cocktail or local craft brew.

There’s No Place Like Home, or Close To It!
Arctic Ale & Art Walk

There are many reasons why a person might choose to move back to their hometown after living elsewhere. One possible reason is the desire to be closer to family and friends. Many people have strong emotional connections to their hometowns and the people who live there, and they may miss being near their loved ones.

Another reason a person might move back to their hometown is the sense of familiarity and comfort that it offers. For some people, the idea of returning to a place where they have spent a significant portion of their life can be appealing, especially if they have fond memories of growing up there.

A third reason for moving back to one’s hometown could be the opportunity to be part of a tight-knit community. Some people enjoy the sense of belonging and connection that comes from living in a small town or neighborhood where everyone knows each other.

Overall, the decision to move back to a hometown is a personal one that is driven by a variety of factors, including emotional, practical, and social considerations.
