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!
Located in a beautifully restored 1880's historic building in Princeton Illinois, Annies Little Pots is a unique gallery featuring beautiful hand-made art from Central Illinois. All of the pottery is created by Ann Dittmer in her studio on-site. You will also find a wide variety of metal sculpture for your home and garden - trellises, arbors, plant stands, critters, and more. The gallery also features beautiful original paintings, photography, jewelry, purses, greeting cards, and more.
