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!

The Hegeler Carus Mansion is an architectural masterpiece and a key to the rich history of the Illinois Valley, the Midwest and the nation. Located near Starved Rock State Park, the mansion has remained virtually unaltered since its completion more than a century ago. The grounds were developed shortly after the mansion was built in 1874 and feature many unique plants and trees such as: giant trilliums, twin leaf Jeffersonian, hepatica, Kentucky coffee, gingko trees, catalpa trees, and the area's largest bald cypress tree.
