The Illinois Valley Area encompasses an area of more than 600 square miles along the Illinois River, 90 miles southwest of Chicago, at the intersection of two major interstates (I-39 & I-80).

The Illinois Valley Area Chamber and Economic Development Development (IVAC) area incorporates portions of four counties ( Bureau, La Salle, Marshall and Putnam) including the Cities of LaSalle, Oglesby, Peru, Spring Valley and Wenona and 19 surrounding Villages.

The area offers a diverse economy served by a skilled and industrious work force, and fed by an excellent education system.

In the Illinois Valley Area, you will find a magnificent blend of natural beauty (three beautiful State Parks), history (dating back to the early 1600's), recreational opportunities (year round) and a rapidly, growing economic base (both commercial and industrial). Please take a short visual tour of the Illinois Valley as you peruse this booklet, until you have an opportunity to visit personally.

 

Welcome to the Illinois Valley Area! ...........a perfect location in which to live and conduct business.
