The towns of Macomb, Quincy, Galesburg and Jacksonville offer a number of attractions that prove Western Illinois to be an area steeped in history. When in Macomb, visitors can tour the McDonough County Courthouse and the Museum of Geology or take a quick trip to the country to discover the area's historic barns. Quincy, located on the banks of the Mississippi River, features examples of 19th-century architecture as well as Indian Mounds Park, the site of preserved American Indian burial mounds. A trip to Galesburg in late June introduces visitors to the city's railway past with the Galesburg Railroad Days celebration, while culture seekers can visit the Galesburg Civic Art Center and the Orpheum Theatre, a landmark since 1916. South of Galesburg, Jacksonville offers family-friendly festivals throughout the year, from the Chautauqua and General Grierson Days Civil War reenactments in June to the Cruise Night and Street Rod Reunion in September to the Christmas Homes Tour and Tea in December.
