If the Chicago area gets a third major airport, Peotone will probably be its site. This small Will County community is populated by people who love a country-style way of life. Productive farm land begins where the village ends and influence the character of the community and its business.
Peotone is located on Illinois Highway 50, about fifteen miles north of Kankakee. Interstate 57 is only a short distance away to the west.
The Will County Fairgrounds in Peotone is the site of the annual Will County Fair, attracting farmers and residents from throughout the county. Also drawing visitors to the community are the historic H.A. Rathje Mill, where grain continues to be ground into flour, and the annual Peotone Car Club's parade of antique automobiles.
