The product of a 30-year continuing project to capture the many ways our Illinois towns offer Roots, a Hometown, and a Little America for us all, “Main Street, Illinois” is a memorable and fun-filled tour of the charms, traditions, and personalities of our Illinois towns — mostly small towns — led by the only person who has visited and photographed all 2400 of them.

John Lynn of Peoria has photographed all 2400 Illinois cities, villages, and towns. Travel the main streets with John Lynn on April 30, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Carnegie Rooms.
