Freeport is a community of 26,000 people located in the rolling hills of the northwest Illinois
driftless area. Just a short drive to Chicago, Milwaukee, Rockford, Quad Cities, Madison, and
Dubuque, Freeport is highly accessible. Freeport is also located within a cluster of food and arts-based
tourism and is located along the highly traveled corridor of Highway 20 that connects
Chicago with Freeport, Galena, and Dubuque.

A vibrant, historic downtown with well-preserved architecture, a new state-of-the-art
   downtown library, and striking historic residences in nearby neighborhoods
