Moving Companies in Illinois and State Information

Welcome to Illinois

Illinois is the 21st US state. It's located in the Midwest and is the most populated and diverse state, demographically, in that part of the country, as well as the fifth most populous state in the entire nation. Its biggest city, Chicago, is the third most populous city in the United States, surpassed only by New York City and Los Angeles. Chicago is located in the northeastern part of Illinois, and smaller industrial cities are located in west and central part of the state.

Illinois has a lot of natural resources such as timber, coal, petroleum, etc., which gives the state a broad base economically. Because of the Port of Chicago, the Illinois River links the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes together. Needless to say, Illinois plays an important role in agricultural productivity and transportation.

Many centuries ago, a Mississippian city called Cahokia was located in what is now the southern part of Illinois. Cahokia had a population of nearly 40,000 people between the 14th and 15th centuries, which made it the largest city of the future US during those times. During the American Revolution, around 2,000 Native American hunters and French immigrants inhabited the area of Illinois.

The future city of Chicago was founded along the banks of the Chicago River around 1830. The Chicago River was a very important natural harbor on the southern part of Lake Michigan. Steel plow inventions and railroads played an important role in central Illinois--they turned the rich prairies into very valuable farmlands. This attracted Swedish and German farmer immigrants. By the year 1900, the industrial growths from all parts of the state attracted many immigrants from other parts of Europe as well. African Americans migrated to Chicago from the southern states and helped shape an important community. This led to the blues and jazz cultures that Chicago is well known for.

Lake Michigan borders Illinois's Northeastern side. The state's eastern border is with Indiana, and its northern border is with Wisconsin. The Mississippi river runs along the western border of Illinois, separating it from Iowa and Missouri. The state's southern border is the Ohio River, and below that is Kentucky. Michigan also borders Illinois, but only through a Lake Michigan water boundary.

Illinois is known for its many museums, which include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. This is located in Springfield and is well known for being the largest presidential library in the entire country. Chicago's museums are considered to be the best and most famous in the world. They include the Field Museum of Natural History, John G. Shedd Aquarium, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Also in Chicago is the Museum of Science and Industry, which is the last remaining building from the Columbian Exposition, held in 1893, that celebrated the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' finding the new world.

The state parks in Illinois began in 1908. What is now known as the Fort Massac State Park system encompasses over sixty parks and approximately sixty wildlife and recreational areas, making the area the first "park in a system".
