Illiopolis is practically the dead center of the state of Illinois. At least it appears that way on a map. I had not spent much time there at all in my lifetime because it was simply a town between Decatur and Springfield on Old Route 36 and a driveby on the way to the state fair. Driving along the interstate, you’d be lucky to know it even existed if you pay attention to the signs.
This photo is of Resurrection Parish on the corner of Anne and Fourth Street.
This particular trip, we took Old 36 from Springfield back to Decatur just because. You’ll miss out if you stay on that interstate.
