Since 1680, the Peoria region has been a hub of fantastic stories and interesting anecdotes -- from the early French explorers and Native Americans that once called our region home, to the Whiskey City barons that built their beautiful homes on the bluffs of the Illinois River, to the vaudeville stages that entertained the masses, to the rise of our international corporate leader in Caterpillar, our region knows what it means to be “on the map”.
Learn more about what is happening in our region by reading our informational press releases and news stories featured here.
