Home health provides a wide range of medical services in the comfort of your home. Services may include nursing, therapy, medical social worker and nurses aide. Home health is prescribed by a physician to help patients recover from surgery or illness and regain independence in the comfort of their homes.

Who pays for home health… Since home health is a medical necessity prescribed by a physician, your Medicare Part A insurance pays 100% of the cost with no co-pay similar to most insurance. Be sure to inquire about your home health coverage when changing insurance plans.

Why should you utilize home health…

Some patients are reluctant to utilize home health because they think it will increase their medical costs. The reverse is true. Patients who receive home health lower their health care cost by over $15,000 and improve their overall health compared to patients who do not utilize home health services.

How to choose a home health… Your care manager may provide you a list of home health providers to choose from.

Welcome!

he year 2020 ended up being nothing like anyone thought and the start of 2021 looks as though it’s going to be an unpredictable year as well. As we’ve taken on e-learning, drive-by birthday parades, and daily zoom meetings the innovation of our businesses, creativity of our communities, and the resilience of people in general continues to be amazing. Living, working, and playing in Grundy County and the Channahon-Minooka area is still an experience to remember, it just looks a little different as we navigate life with COVID-19. Our nostalgic downtowns feature more outdoor dining, the shops have quirky mask sales, and our parks are open with safety guidelines in place.

OUR VISION Chamber of Commerce Vision

Promote economic growth through the recruitment of quality businesses and industries to the area that will contribute to the overall economic health of the community. Provide opportunities for member businesses to obtain higher degree of success through networking, referrals, marketing and other direct membership services.

It’s out a little later than normal, but the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Channahon Minooka Chamber are proud once again to provide this Community Guide. Our visitor bureaus in Morris, Minooka, and Coal City are still open to help you navigate all our community has to offer.

Our members have gone above and beyond to stay in business as COVID-19 has rocked our local economy. Many have figured out how to deliver, provide take-out, or accommodate the outdoors for the first time. Others upgraded their online ordering so customers can stay safe at home. Still some had to close their doors as they just couldn’t combat the shutdown. Your support is truly more important than ever to keep our local businesses and communities vibrant. The member directory is a great resource to look up local businesses and organizations to help you with all your product and service needs. See for yourself why so many work, live, and play here.

WELCOME TO CHANNAHON

O CHANNAHON VILLAGE STAFF: Village President: Missey Moorman Schumacher Village Administrator: Thomas Durkin Village Clerk: Kristin Hall Director of Community Development & Information Systems: Michael Petrick Finance Director: Heather Wagonblott Chief Building Official: Stephen Kuczkowski Director of Public Works: Edward Dolezal Chief of Police: Shane Casey Fire Chief: John Petrakis Emergency Services Coordinator: John Grimmenga

n behalf of the elected officials, and staff, I would like to welcome you to Channahon.

Channahon enjoys a rich and diverse history, from our proud Native American origins to our heritage as an I&M Canal town to our distinction as a stop along Historic Route 66. A Potawatomi word, Channahon means “meeting of the waters.” Quaintly nestled where the Kankakee and Des Plaines Rivers meet to form the Illinois River, Channahon’s waterways also include the DuPage River and I&M Canal. Our natural resources, breathtaking scenery, recreational opportunities, and friendly community make Channahon a wonderful place to visit or make your home.

Make Channahon your destination! Nestled near the intersection of I-80 and I-55, Channahon is conveniently located and within easy driving distance of Chicago and other destinations. Channahon is situated on the north side of the Illinois River and has several access points that open up to all kinds of fun on the water - boating, water skiing, fishing or just relaxing near the water’s edge. Avid golfers can visit The Bluffs Golf Course, Channahon’s 18-hole award-winning course operated by the Channahon Park District that’s right off of Interstate 55. There are also miles of hiking and biking trails along the I&M Canal, and plenty of woods and fresh air in our Forest Preserves. While enjoying Channahon’s many trails, visitors can visit the Briscoe Mounds, the

largest Native American burial mounds in northern Illinois, or stop by the Four Rivers Environmental Education Center for a stunning view of the outdoors and the Illinois River. Our accredited police department and philosophy of community policing have earned us numerous distinctions. We welcome you to explore our community and call it home. Our many amenities including restaurants, annual festivals and events, an award winning park district, excellent school districts, healthcare facilities and outdoor recreation attract both residents and visitors. We pride ourselves on fostering development while still maintaining the small town atmosphere that makes Channahon a peaceful, desirable community. Our current population of 13,500 allows us ample opportunity for thoughtful growth while still maintaining our small town charm. Channahon welcomes you. Whether you’re a visitor, a soon to be resident, or a potential business owner, come see what Channahon has to offer for you. Our knowledgeable and friendly Village staff is ready and willing to assist with all your needs.

HISTORY OF CHANNAHON

The first people known to have lived in the area are now known as the “MoundBuilders.” These Native Americans constructed mounds of earth to bury their dead. At one time mounds were found all around this area. These tribes suddenly disappeared around 500 AD in an archaeological mystery. The Potawatomi Indians were the last Native Americans to live in this area. A Native American village of more than 1000 inhabitants once stood where Channahon now stands. A Potawatomi chief named Boubonnais raced ponies here, right along where Route 6 runs today. Explorers Louis Jolliet and Father Jacques Marquette traveled through this area in 1673. After exploring the Mississippi River, members of the Illini tribe told them of a “short-cut” to return to Lake Michigan by following what is

now called the Illinois River. This river would lead them to a marshland called “checagou.”

McCowan, Capt. Willard, Michael Morehouse, Jedidiah, Walter, and E. G. Eames, Joseph N. Fryer, George Tryon, Uncle “Bont” Schermerhorn, and John Ward.

The majority of the Native Americans had been relocated to the west by the time the first settlers arrived in the 1830s. History shows a friendship developed between the settlers and the Pottawatomi. It has been said there was great sadness when they government forced the remaining Native Americans to move on. They received cash from the government for their land and reportedly gave $1000 to settler Seymour Treat to complete a gristmill on the island where he settled in 1833. In 1835 a Native American chief was buried on Treat’s Island.

In 1836 the I & M Canal was begun and Channahon became the site for two locks. The village was originally called DuPage. During the digging of the canal, the canal trustees wanted to name the town Swifton, after the canal board president. Through the influence of Judge Peck the town was called Channahon.

In 1832 the first white settlers paid $1.25 an acre for their land. Among the early settlers were Isaac Jessup, Wm. E. Peck, E. C. Fellows, H. D. Risely, Peter

When the village was organized, there were several businesses, four mercantile stores, one grocery, two blacksmith shops, one wagon shop, a hardware

store, two saloons, a hotel, an ice cream parlor, and a butcher shop. The Village of Channahon was originally incorporated in 1896. In 1907, the bridge over the DuPage River collapsed with an automobile on it. The driver of the auto planned to sue the village, but the question of the bridge’s ownership came up. The village fathers decided to discard the corporate charter to avoid the lawsuit. The village was again incorporated in 1962.

n behalf of the Village Board and employees, I welcome you to visit the Village of Minooka.

Dating back to our incorporation in 1869 along the route of the Rock Island Railroad, Minooka is Potawatomi for “Good Land.” Just a couple miles north of the Illinois River, we were an early home to many Native American Indian tribes. We overlook three separate counties – Grundy, Will, and Kendall. Just like our history, people have moved and settled in Minooka for our beautiful surrounding and safe environment. Our goal as a community it to provide a safe, friendly community for our residents and offer opportunities for families to grow and thrive here. I encourage you to sign up for our e-news so you can be informed on the latest news as it happens in the Village along with our SWIFT 911 program to alert citizens of storms, construction or announcements (available on our website). Also, check out our Village and Community Events calendars, as we make an effort to provide a variety of events for our residents, year round (www.minooka.com). Minooka isn’t letting COVID-19 ruin the strength of our community, and a good example is our new 120 acre Aux Sable Springs Park we are building on the north side of Minooka scheduled to be completed in December of this year! For families stuck inside due to COVID, this Winter there will be walking trails ready through 60 acres of woods with several old-growth oaks and trees to view, fishing out croppings and a kayak launch on the Aux Sable Creek! Ready in the spring of 2021, will be a pinwheel baseball/softball complex and three new multi-purpose soccer fields as well.

ALL VILLAGE MEETINGS

are held in the Board Room of the Minooka Village Hall located at 121 East McEvilly Road. Note: These are the regularly scheduled meeting dates. If you are planning to attend a meeting, please call to confirm the date and time.

The Village of Minooka has seen many changes over the years. Transportation and logistics have played an important role in the development of the community, specifically providing hundreds of jobs, with large employers like Macys, BMW, Electrolux, Kellogg, Grainger, Trader Joes and most recently a $30 million fully automated expansion by US Cold Storage. With our Interstate 80 and 55 proximity, we not only attract logistics, but also light manufacturing needing to be close to the Chicagoland market. On the commercial side, we have now seen interest in the hotel and restaurant sectors start to take off with our second hotel being built last year and new restaurants and coffee shops locating next to them. All this, allows the Village to have a diverse tax base for our residents. Our residents can enjoy the quaint, small town atmosphere, along with a great school district, services and churches, beautiful local parks and recreational opportunities, low taxes and a low crime rate, while still having all of the offerings of urban life a short drive away from Chicago amenities. The Village Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If you ever have a question or even a concern within the community, contact us or stop in. We are here to serve, so please feel free to email or call. We are a vibrant, growing community and with your help we will continue to improve every day and keep Minooka “A nice place to call home!” — Patrick Brennan Village President

HISTORY OF MINOOKA

The Village of Minooka came into existence in 1852, when the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad came through the area on the recommendation of the surveyor, Ransom Gardner. Mr. Gardner had purchased 500 acres of land along the proposed route of the Rock Island Railroad. The Village of Minooka was incorporated on March 27, 1869. George Comerford, an Irish immigrant, is also credited for bringing the railroad to Minooka. His family bought land in Aux Sable Twp. and Mr. Comerford worked as a railroad surveyor. He was also involved in the actual construction of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Line and became the the Minooka depot’s first agent. Comerford was also instrumental in establishing a post office in 1853 and served as its postmaster for nine years. Dolly Smith, the wife of Gardner’s agent, Leander Smith, is credited with naming Minooka. Mrs. Smith, who was familiar with the Potowatomi language, named the town Minooka that means place of contentment or good earth. Prior to that time the railroad workers named the village Summit because it was the highest point in

Illinois on the Rock Island line. It was also called “Anoka” for a time. Mrs. Smith also named many of the streets in the old part of Minooka.

stood on the southeast corner of Wapella and Wabena Streets until the early 1960s. The 1860s saw a building boom in Minooka. In 1866, A. K. Knapp built a grain elevator. Early merchants included R. Gardner & Co.; a large department store that at one time employed a dozen people. There were grocery stores, saloons, blacksmith shops, boot and shoemakers, tin and copper smith, a meat market, plus more, enough to supply everyone’s needs.

- By Three Rivers Public Library

Leander and Dolly Smith built a home on the northwest corner of Wabena and St. Mary’s streets. This home had a big bay window where in her later years, Mrs. Smith would reminisce about the beginnings of Minooka. The stories say that Chief Shabbona would often come on the train from Morris and they would sit and speak in Potowatomi about the “good old days.” In 1858, C. V. Hamilton built a number of buildings in Minooka. One was a hotel, Hamilton House. It

n behalf of the residents and employees of the City of Morris, welcome! I invite you to explore our city to see all we have to offer our residents, visitors, and businesses. I’m sure you’ll find that Morris is a community with a quality of life ideal for living, working and raising your family.

Located about an hour southwest of Chicago, Morris is a city of just over 14,000 residents that is the best of all possible worlds; great schools, quality healthcare, and an historic downtown combined with the amenities of a big city. We have great connections to neighboring communities and beyond via Route 47 and interstates 55 and 80. We also have the Morris Municipal Airport and two international ones-Chicago’s Midway and O’Hare-less than an hour away. No matter where you need to go, you can get there from here. Take a walk through downtown Morris and you may feel as though you’ve stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting. In fact, it’s been called a “Rockwellian” downtown by the Chicago Tribune and was ranked as one of the “top 50 daytrips” by Chicago Magazine. Located on the historic I&M Canal, nostalgic downtown Morris brings people from miles around for its annual community festivals, quaint old-fashioned appeal and a wealth of unique shops that rival the finest any big city has to offer. You can shop ‘til you drop here…and the friendly, personal service is always free! We’ve raised dining to an art form in downtown Morris. Whether you want a sandwich or a four-course meal, you can

People move to Morris for many reasons: our excellent schools, first-rate health care facilities, historic downtown, and plentiful recreational opportunities. People stay in Morris because of the superb quality of life we offer. We have the charm of a small town mixed with the amenities of a big city. Morris is a great place to live….work… and play! More than half of our 14,000plus residents are homeowners giving unparalleled strength to our neighborhoods. Our parks offer a quiet place to unwind… or be active with walking trails, playground equipment, recreational activities and boat launches. There’s a community spirit here that can’t be found in larger cities. Neighbors care about each other; parents can feel comfortable about letting their children play outside, and our proactive government leaders are committed to the city’s growth while maintaining our Norman Rockwell charm.

HISTORY OF MORRIS

In 1834, the very first log cabin was built at what is now Jefferson and Nettle streets. Eight years later, the Village of Morris was established. It later became a city. In 1839, villagers built the Shakey Bridge across Nettle Creek to attract stagecoach lines. By 1845, daily mail was being delivered. With the opening of the I&M Canal in 1848, and the first steam train railroad in 1853, Morris continued to grow and prosper.

took 12 years to complete. Beginning in Chicago and ending in LaSalle, it was the first link between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. Immediately, grain prices tripled as this became the primary mode of transportation for farmers. Five years later, the influence of the canal was replaced by the train and Morris grew to the north near the tracks. The last boat passed through in 1914.

In 1673, Canadian fur trader, Louis Jolliet, and Jesuit missionary, Father Jacque Marquette, passed through the Illinois River Valley. Jolliet envisioned a canal from the Illinois River to Lake Michigan that would connect the Atlantic with the Mississippi River. One hundred sixty-three years later his dream became a reality when construction began on the I&M Canal. The first map of this area shows a village of 1,500 Mound Builders that were located near the present site of Morris. Construction of the canal in the 1840s uncovered several artifacts and skeletons at the mounds. Believed to be over 300 years old, the oldest monument in Morris is the Red Cedar Pole that once stood in the center of a mound on Wauponsee Street. Since red cedar does not naturally grow in Illinois, its origin is a mystery. The Illini (“Superior Men”) tribes were the first inhabitants that the French explorers encountered on

the expedition across this area. Chief to a tribe of Potawatomi by marriage, Shabbona was nicknamed “a friend to the White Man” when he helped save the lives of settlers during the Black Hawk War of 1832. Wauponsee, another Potawatomi Chief, was also helpful to the first settlers. His name meant “Bright Place in the Sky.” The oldest section of town, Court House Square, was established in 1843. There have been countless celebrations on the lawn as well as the first execution – a hanging – for a murder in 1890. Three court houses have been built there. The I&M Canal was one of Morris’ greatest assets in its early growing years. Construction, funded by government grants, began in 1836. The 96-mile length

On January 5, 1853, the first steam train pulled into Morris, an event the whole town came to witness. The Chicago-Rock Island Railroad soon became the most economical transportation for coal, grain, and passengers and eventually caused the demise of the I&M Canal. By 1877, Morris was a prosperous town. The Chicago, Ottawa, and Peoria Electric Railway came in 1910 and a line was installed in 1913 down Liberty Street. In-town rides cost 5 cents. State highways brought an end to the Interurban in 1934. The 1911 Morris depot, on the southeast corner of Benton and Liberty streets, today houses the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

WELCOME TO COAL CITY

COAL CITY VILLAGE STAFF: Mayor: Terry Halliday Village Administrator: Matt Fritz Treasurer: Kristi Wickiser Village Clerk: Pamela Noffsinger Public Works Superintendent: Darrell Olson Chief of Police: Tom Best Fire Chief: James Seerup

T

he Village Board and I would like to invite you to join the growing community of people who have discovered Coal City as a great place to live, work, and relax. Coal City prides itself on maintaining a full service community. Residents and businesses have access to the educational and recreational services of an award winning school district, the Coal City Public Library District, and two community parks and athletic fields. The Village operates its’ own municipally-owned water and wastewater utilities allowing local control of costs and expansions. Public safety services are provided by the Coal City Police Department and the Coal City Fire Protection District.

Business development has been an important part of the Coal City community for over 100 years. Area mining activity in the late 19th Century spurred the need for a cohesive community where residents could access services and business could utilize common resources, so Coal City was founded in 1881. The Village Board and I have taken steps to continue this tradition of meeting the needs of existing businesses and nourishing business retention and expansion. The Village Board and I have implemented many tools to attract and nourish business. We are especially proud of the completely revitalized Coal City downtown area due to the investment of millions of dollars to reconstruct the entire right of way within South Broadway. From the resurfacing efforts on the portions of Broadway south of the BNSF railroad crossing to the complete restoration from the tracks to State Route 113, this large scale rejuvenation expresses the vibrancy of the community to anyone who drives through our community.

New businesses may want to take advantage of the opportunities presented by our Tax Increment Finance (TIF) District. Also, Coal City is included in the Ottawa Enterprise Zone approved by the State of Illinois. Enterprise Zones provide many financial incentives for new business construction. In addition, the Village recognizes that time is money, and recently amended its zoning code to provide clearer direction to developers and business owners. There is even a business group who meets and organizes joint promotional opportunities to assist the sales of area retail stores. The Village of Coal City understands the importance of local infrastructure. Over the past few years, the Village has overhauled its Water Treatment Filtration Facility, completed multiple water main replacement projects, and even completed replacing all of its water meters. Municipal ownership of water and sewer utilities provides “one stop shopping” and streamlined project approvals. Municipal ownership also provides local rate control, and ensures your utility payments are used to improve local services. Village authorities understand the importance of the transportation network. Coal City has an ongoing capital program to maintain and upgrade local streets and stormwater systems. Coal City has easy access to major state and interstate transportation routes. State Route 113 bisects the Village and provides direct access to the I-55 interchange less than five miles away. — Terry Halliday Mayor, Village of Coal City

HISTORY OF COAL CITY Coal City was settled in the mid1800s, along with local neighbors South Wilmington, Braidwood, Godley, Carbon Hill, and Diamond. The village began because of the coal mines. Local blacksmiths used the coal, and farmers added it to ears of corn that were burned for heat and energy. Consisting of sunken mines, a population of 900 and two buildings, the village incorporated on August 17, 1881. Beginning in the 1920s and completed within the next decade, the Opera House joined the village’s downtown facades along Broadway. In the 1940s, Coal City, Streator and Mazon residents enjoyed hopping on the “Doodlebug,” a daily passenger train to and from Joliet. With just over 5,000 residents, Coal City continues to be a place to learn, live, play, grow, and enjoy. Residents in the newer subdivisions such as Richards Crossing and Spring Meadows have discovered a community with low property taxes and an awardwinning school district, with ISAT scores that exceed state averages, and state championship athletics. Students from Coal City, Diamond, Carbon Hill and Goose Lake attend one community unit school district, that includes an early learning center, elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools. Located just south of I-80 along the I-55 Corridor, Coal City is at the doorstep of the western suburbs.

Residents can shop in Bolingbrook and Oakbrook’s regional malls, visit downtown Chicago’s museums, sports and arts, while enjoying a relaxing, small town way of life. Recreation is at the heart of the community. The chain of lakes, created from reclaimed mines along Coal City’s northern border, offers camping, fishing and boating. The nearby Kankakee and Des Plaines rivers offer additional activities, including horseback riding. Because of these opportunities, growth has been inevitable. Coal City’s Comprehensive Plan controls growth, while ensuring the village enjoys the opportunities that come from commercial establishments, restaurants, businesses, and manufacturing. From the early Turners who continued the Bohemian traditions to the Lions Club Members, residents are proud of their village. Each year, the village comes together in a number of events including its Oktoberfest. The village and a host of nonprofit organizations are comprised of residents who invest their time and energy into making Coal City even more enjoyable.

WELCOME TO DIAMOND DIAMOND VILLAGE STAFF: Mayor: Terry Kernc Village Clerk: Lori Holmes Planning & Zoning Coordinator: Cindy Haywood Treasurer: Wendy Herbert Public Works: Austin Vining

A

s Mayor of the Village of Diamond and on behalf of the Village Board, Planning & Zoning Board, employees, and our residents, I extend to you our warmest welcome. We are very pleased that you are interested in learning more about our Village. Diamond’s unique character is rooted in its 125-year history – a history full of bright people and fascinating tales. Back then, newly discovered mines in the area offered opportunities for employment and one of those areas which began to grow was Diamond, located approximately 54 miles southwest of Chicago. Throughout the years Diamond has seen continued growth and improvement. The current Board has focused its attention on attracting economic development and improving infrastructure. With that in mind, the Village established the Diamond I-55 Corridor TIF District in the Will County portion of our community and the Diamond Enterprise Zone located in both the Will and Grundy County portions of our community. In 2019, we welcomed the completion of the Morris Hospital Diamond-Coal City Campus which offers a variety of medical services including immediate care, imaging, lab work, physical therapy, occupational health, family and specialty physicians. In 2020 we welcomed the Diamond Indoor Trap Range, which offers recreational and competitive trap shooting, a first of its kind in the country! A Hog Wild Restaurant is located inside the Trap Range and provides an excellent array of food choices. In 2021 the Village will welcome Domino’s Pizza and in 2021/2022 a GasNWash and Dunkin. Great things are happening in Diamond!

The Village continues to pursue grant opportunities for major infrastructure improvements and we are aware of the importance and benefits of public/private partnerships. We also create partnerships that utilize federal, private, and public funds for the construction of major roadway improvements. These partnerships have resulted in almost $4M of intersection and roadway improvements on IL 113. A public/private partnership is also being utilized to install a signal at Will Road and IL 113. The Village is dedicated to continually improving our community. In 2019 significant watermain projects were completed in the village. To effectively communicate with our residents and business owners, the Village instituted “Smart Message.” To date, over 2,000 folks have registered and receive phone calls, e-mails, and text messages regarding road closures, construction information and more. Our residents enjoy the quaint, small town atmosphere, along with a great school district, convenient shopping, services, churches, nearby beautiful state parks and recreational opportunities, as well as low taxes and a low crime rate, while still having all the offerings of urban life a short drive away. The Covid-19 pandemic has been a challenge to the world that we will continue to face head on with all hands-on deck! We are committed to staying safe, so please, wear masks, social distance, and wash hands frequently. United we stand! — Teresa “Terry” Kernc

Mayor, Village of Diamond

HISTORY OF DIAMOND The Village of Diamond is located in Grundy County and Will County, 52 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop, just south of I-80 along the I-55 Corridor. The Village was named after the coal synonym “black diamond” due to the sparkle from the sunlight on the rich black coal. The area attracted coal miners in the early 1870s and on February 16, 1883 tragedy struck when a mine shaft flooded, killing 74 men and boys. A monument still stands in Diamond on IL 113 memorializing the event. Incorporated in 1895, the Village nearly disappeared after coal mining ended in the early 1900s. The Village reincorporated in 1949 and had a population of 1,393 by the end of the century. Today more than 2,500 people call it home. Diamond students attend the award-winning Coal City Community Unit School District #1, which offers an early childhood learning center, elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools. District 1 ISAT scores routinely exceed

state averages, and its athletic programs have won state championships. Shopping, services and activities are abundant between the Village of Diamond and neighboring communities – Wilmington, Coal City, Carbon Hill and Braidwood – all within 15 minutes. They include churches, grocery stores, dollar stores, drug stores, libraries, post offices, banks, child care, beauty salons, auto repair, florists, dance studios, fitness centers, restaurants of all kinds, gas stations, health care providers, dental offices, physical therapy, movie theater, bowling alley, roller skating rink, golf courses, and parks. Private clubs offer camping, fishing, boating and swimming. The nearby Kankakee and Des

Plaines Rivers also offer a wealth of recreational activities. Residents enjoy a peaceful country life, with low taxes and low crime, while still being close to urban settings. Diamond still has plenty of open green space and farmers’ fields. Children play outside while their parents chat on the sidewalks. The lifestyle your grandparents enjoyed can still be found in Diamond.

WELCOME TO CARBON HILL

N

estled between Morris and Coal City, our neat homes and friendly faces will welcome you. Bike through our area, play ball in our fields, and come celebrate our annual homecoming in June. We boast good food, good times, crafts, parade, athletic events and hometown camaraderie. Good schools, nearby city access, and charming homes make our city yours.

A Brief History of Carbon Hill Situated in Felix Township, Carbon Hill was surveyed and platted in June, 1891, by Streator’s Star Coal Company, and organized, January 25, 1892. The village had a population of 1,800 and Robert Fleming became its first president. The original buildings near the EJ&E roundhouse were south of Rathburn Street, in an area called Runcie’s addition. During later mining strikes, the area was dubbed Bunker Hill. Prior to incorporation, Carbon Hill was a coal mining camp known as Scotch Hill. In 1900, four coal mines operated around and under the village and the population hovered near 2,000 with Scotch, Welsh, English, Irish, Italian, Austrian, Slovenian, as well as African

American mining families. Families concentrated in their own neighborhoods and the men met in the dozens of saloons to socialize in their native tongues. The town’s bakeries provided a pleasant aroma in the morning. Many evenings, the town band performed in the park’s bandstand. Soccer and Bocce were the prominent sports. Wooden sidewalks and gas lights enhanced a business district which included stores, a post office, meat market, opera hall, hotel, livery stable and blacksmith shop. There was the Carbon Hill Athletic Club, a doctor’s office, fire house, beer house, the depot and roundhouse. Backyards held grape arbors, root cellars, chicken coops and wells. The local school opened in September, 1893 and closed in 1955. The town remains familiar and friendly, maintaining its own identity and government. Citizens pay taxes to the Coal City library, fire, and school districts, and the village purchases its water supply from nearby Coal City. The former Carbon Hill school serves as a local public museum. The coal company gifted the community park to the village. Thus our well maintained park has been used for family reunions, picnics, ball games, and various fundraisers for over 100 years.

CARBON HILL SCHOOL The 1893 schoolhouse displays original artifacts depicting turn-of-the-century immigrant and community life. Items include the jailhouse’s iron doors, soccer trophies, bocce balls, mining tools, furniture, household items, coal reports, maps, plats and plenty of family memories. The north room represents the coal fields of Grundy and Will Counties. The south classroom, with desks, old books and photos, depicts our school history. There’s also local memorabilia, kitchen, bedroom and store displays, and a diorama of Carbon Hill in it’s heyday, circa 1900.

WELCOME TO BRACEVILLE

L

ocated in the southeast corner of Grundy County and the southwest corner of Will County, the Village of Braceville was once a thriving city with 3,500 residents at its height in the 1870s. By the late 1880s the town sported six general merchandise stores, two banks, a hotel, two restaurants, and 18 other retail businesses. At that time the Village also included an opera house and large frame school. In the summer of 1910, the miners of Braceville Coal Company went on strike, and the company decided to close its doors permanently.

Today, Braceville has approximately 800 residents and is home to the Mazonia Fish & Wildlife Area. The children attend Braceville Elementary School District 75 and Gardner-South Wilmington Community High School District 73. The thriving United Methodist Church offers after school and youth programs. As part of the historical Route 66 journey, we participate in the Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor each May. Many travelers have stopped to learn about Braceville’s history as presented by lifelong resident, Alice Creech.

The Village is currently registered by the State of Illinois as the center of population in the state. Mazon was originally plotted as part of a Government Land Grant to Mr. Richard Fuller, dated 1848. It was originally called “Centre Town” and later was known as “New Mazon,” and then simply as Mazon. In 1892, “The Mazon Register” was founded by Walter Dunlap. It was a weekly publication and had a circulation of 1,000, but it was discontinued in 1921. The Grundy County Agricultural District Fair was established on Aug. 12, 1906. The fair and the 4-H Program continued until 1971 in Mazon when it was moved to a large area north of Morris. The Mazon Speed Bowl had served as a major racing facility for many years. Today, Mazon has a population of 1,100 people and has developed a commercial park to attract industry. It also has several small subdivisions for new growth. Mazon is proud to have a lighted ball park that serves our community and local schools.

The assessment process plays an important role in local government. Equitable assessments assure property owners that they are paying their fair share of the costs of operating schools, providing police and fire protection, road construction and maintenance, and other basic public services. The Supervisor of Assessments is concerned with value and does not collect taxes, calculate taxes or determine the tax rate. Taxing jurisdictions such as schools, cities, and townships, adopt budgets which determine the tax levy. The actual dollar amount of your tax bill is determined by how much money these local agencies need to operate. Every dollar of property tax remains in the local area to fund local government.

HOW CAN WE SERVE YOU? Be sure to check the Hot Deals section of the website and app for coupons from local Chamber members, as well as the Community Calendar featuring events from the Chamber, local municipalities, park districts, organizations and businesses.

SHOP LOCAL Grundy County is a unique mix of people, places and products. By choosing to support locallyowned businesses, you help maintain our community’s unique mix.

We have maps of the county on-hand, as well as area phone books, community calendars, tourism information, walking historical tours and more. We also are a resource for relocation information. Whether you are looking to move from one Grundy County town to another, or from across the country, the Chamber provides real estate, school district, healthcare, and professional service information. The Chamber’s main office in Morris is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and also features brochures and maps on the outside of the building for after hours visitors. The Minooka office is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesday. We work diligently to help our business community thrive to help provide our community with a well-established local

Your dollars spent in locallyowned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development. So before you leave town and hit up a mall, check your local stores. Even if you don’t immediately see something specific you are looking for, ask the shop owner or manager. The beauty part about dealing with a local business is they might be able to get in exactly what you’re looking for or help you to find it. And the next time you come in, they will remember you and welcome you with open arms. Remember too that when you shop local, others will follow. When you find the perfect birthday gift and tell the recipient you got it at a local

retailer, the next time they are in need of a gift they will remember your referral! To encourage shopping local, the Chamber has a Chamber Gift Certificate program that can be used anytime throughout the year and for a variety of purposes. Unlike a gift certificate from a single location, the Chamber Gift Certificates provide the recipient with numerous choices as to where they can redeem it. At the same time, these dollars then remain in the Grundy County region and contribute to local sales tax dollars that provide critical services in Grundy County, such as fire and police protection and street improvements. A Chamber Gift Certificate can be redeemed at hundreds of businesses (a list is provided with every gift certificate purchase). So whether it’s a Christmas gift, a client thank you gift, or an employee incentive, think local and consider a Chamber Gift Certificate.

Special thanks to event sponsors D’Arcy Chevrolet Buick in Morris, OSF Urgo, Exelon’s Dresden Station and Heartland Bank in Minooka who helped us to make this event free to public. Families were also treated to face painting sponsored by Morris National Bank & Trust, and pictures with Elsa from Frozen sponsored by the Holiday Inn Express in Morris.
