Overview of Edwardsville

Anyone looking to relocate to scenic southwestern Illinois should consider making Edwardsville their new home. This historic, charming community is an ideal place to start a family or grow a business. It's no wonder Edwardsville was mentioned in Family Circle's 2010 list of 10 Best Towns for Families.

Living in Edwardsville, IL

In 1905, the first settlers came to Edwardsville. The town was named after Ninian Edwards, the Illinois Territory governor appointed in 1809 who would later serve as governor after Illinois became a state. The small community slowly attracted more residents, and began constructing buildings and homes. In just a few short years, Edwardsville was named the seat of county government when Madison County was established.

Through the 1850s and 1860s, Edwardsville expanded to make room for more people. Its economy during this time was diverse, and included industries such as flour mills, clay mining, brick manufacturing, and wood mills. Because Edwardsville was the seat of county government and a railroad hub, the city saw its fair share of visitors. As a result of this, tourism was also a large part of the local economy.

Edwardsville is now home to more than 24,000 residents. It has grown substantially since its early beginnings, and has become a historic city that is known for its family-friendly attitude and residential charm.

Edwardsville Attractions and Special Events

Edwardsville is home to several historic attractions that delight both visitors and locals. The Wildey Theatre, which opened its doors in 1909, has entertained the public for years. It originally functioned as an opera house, and later began operating as a movie theater. It was named a local landmark in 1986, and underwent renovations to restore its original beauty. It now showcases classic movies and live performances.

Edwardsville hosts its annual ArtEast fair to display the works of artists who reside in Madison County. More than 100 artists show off their painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and glass pieces for the public to enjoy at the fair. Visitors can browse the exhibits and learn more about the artist and their crafts at this yearly event.

Even those who don't love the outdoors will enjoy a trip to the Watershed Nature Center. Founded in the 1990s, the center was opened to restore and preserve some of southwestern Illinois' natural habitats - forest, prairie and wetland. The center allows visitors to discover these habitats and the plants and creatures that thrive in them.
