What County is Kankakee?
The city of Kankakee, capital of the district of the same name, located south of Chicago, has preserved some traces of its French history. In 2000, the city was described by the magazine “Cities Ranked and Rated” as a city with the worst quality of life in the US. Two houses by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the Riverview district have survived to this day, the first Dairy Queen was opened here. In Paxton, an “English” settlement was to be built in Illinois. The project failed. It is worth visiting the Illinois Central Historical Society, located in the old railway station, which documents the history of the Illinois Central Railroad.
