Quality of Life

Living in rural Illinois is not for everyone. Certainly there are differences between us and the big city. But if you won't miss traffic jams that go on forever or neighbors perched outside your bathroom window… or if you can get used to kayaking a quiet stream, attending community theater, watching a sunset over the hills any day you wish or sipping a chilled glass of lemonade on your porch while watching the birds at your feeder, Northwest Illinois might just be like heaven.

We love our small town of Savanna. We have transplants and business owners from all walks of life and different backgrounds.

@wearethewests
I'm grateful to live somewhere with sunrises that are just as beautiful as our sunsets.

The dahlia tubers are looking mighty fine and the dahlia cuttings are just as extraordinary!

We have decided to support our community and help it grow by sponsoring the preschool wing for our local Arts and Recreation Center's new location.

I like E-Town a latte.
