Where is the Illinois River Road?
Traversing both east and west sides of the Illinois River from Ottawa, 150 miles south to Havana, the Illinois River Road has spurs to the communities of Princeton and Canton. The Illinois River Road corridor has over 100 natural and historic sites and numerous unique communities located throughout its 10-county region.

The Scenic Byway is conveniently located between Chicago and St. Louis, but just far enough to get away from it all. So get off the beaten path and see what the Illinois River Road has in store for you!

Enter the 1860's once-upon-a-time hardware store & find another state of mind. Submerge yourself in the laid-back, pleasant atmosphere & enjoy the attentive service. Take in the tin ceiling and thousands of cubbies and drawers lining the walls, all lending to the charm of this vintage store. Partake in witty banter with a friendly barista at the coffee bar while she steams your latte and beautifully gift wraps your purchase free of charge. You won't find nuts and bolts here anymore, but you will find a world full of unusual gifts and a welcoming staff, some with more than a little attitude!

Unique items, including handmade saltwater toffee, and handcrafted gifts made by local artisans.
