• Camp Ellis was the largest U.S. Army training facility of its kind in the nation during World War II.
• Stephan A Douglas served as a Circuit Court judge
• Abraham Lincoln practiced law here and in 1858 delivered his "Return to the Fountain" speech
• It was the childhood home of Edgar Lee Master, who wrote the famous Spoon River Anthology in 1915
