Silver Springs State Park is within one mile of the City and offers fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, cross-country skiing, and nature study.

Also located within one mile, and adjacent to Silver Springs State Park is the Farnsworth House, a home designed by the world famous architect Mies Van der Rohe. It represents Mr. Rohe’s most celebrated domestic structure, designed after his arrival in the United States in 1938. The house is highly regarded as a significant architectural work and is studied in architecture classes. The house, which at one time was open for public tours, is currently closed. The State of Illinois is in the process of purchasing the house and grounds and it is expected that it will again be open to tours at some future date.
