Pike County is rich in history and nature, nestled between the two rivers of West Central Illinois. From 1821 through 1822, Pike County consisted of all the land between the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers that included, at the time, the small city of Chicago. The County has strong historical ties with Abraham Lincoln who practiced law and made campaign stops in the area. Pike County has a history of many unique towns and villages including Pittsfield, Barry, Griggsville, Hull and Philadelphia, the first town in the United States to be settled by an African American. Visit Pike County for a weekend enjoying nature, shopping or family fun and you’ll be sure to see the unexpected.
