Nestled in a picturesque bend of the scenic Illinois River midway between LaSalle and Peoria, Henry, Illinois is a quiet little community of tree-lined streets and friendly people with a "home-town" atmosphere.
The beauty of the Illinois River and the fertile soil attracted early settlers to the area. The riverfront remains a popular tourist attraction today drawing boating, water skiing, fishing and hunting enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest.
Henry provides a small town atmosphere with a mix of neighborhoods, including both historic and contemporary homes. With its rich diversity of resources it is no wonder that Henry is attractive for its residential areas and for business development.
We welcome you to Come Home to Henry ... Everybody's Hometown.
