CASEY, In Clark County, Illinois

DID YOU KNOW?

When construction of the National Trail or the first road west had been completed through Clark County in 1834, settlements began to spring up along the muddy dirt road. Cumberland settlement was the first population in the Casey area located 1.2 miles east of Casey's present location. The construction of a road (debated to be over an old Indian Trail or by State survey) running north and south over now Route 49/Central Avenue in Casey later drew the population of Cumberland west to the crossroads. Around 1853, the post office and the community of Casey were named after Hon. Mr. (Zadoc) Casey, the United States Senator from Illinois at the time. (Source: http://cityofcaseyil.org)
