The recipient of the 2010 Governor’s Home Town award, Elizabeth, Illinois is an exceptional destination for tourism. Rich in history and Midwestern culture, the village of Elizabeth is home to the Apple River Fort State Historical Site, the Chicago Great Western Railway Depot Museum and the 1876 Banwarth House and Museum. Incorporated in 1868, Elizabeth captures all of the benefits of rural America, in addition to the advantages of being a 21st century Main Street community.
Home to more than 700 people, Elizabeth is one of Illinois’ most unique small towns.
