VILLAGE OF HINCKLEY


Francis Hinckley founded the community in the 1870s, when a railway line was put down on the prairie connecting it to the rest of the country. Hinckley also has the distinction of being the location of the first Harlem Globetrotters away game in 1927. Visitors come from far and near to savor the barbeque at South Moon Barbeque or to grab a bite at Dairy Joy, a little piece of heaven where the treats are as sweet as the welcoming smiles. Feel the exhilaration of soaring through the skies in a high performance sailplane with the Windy City Soaring Association, located at the Hinckley Airport. Hinckley offers plenty of down-home food and adventure.


VILLAGE OF MONTGOMERY


Recognized with a Governor’s Home Town Award for the restoration and preservation of Settler’s Cottage, the 1840s home of its enterprising founder, Daniel S. Gray, Montgomery is the perfect location for fishing, biking and hiking along the Fox River. Each summer, Montgomery Fest brings together neighbors and friends from throughout the area to enjoy a weekend of old-fashioned family fun. Held the second weekend in August, highlights of the festival include musical performances, carnival rides, a wide range of food vendors, free pony rides and petting zoo, a fishing derby, a car show and a parade. Experience the beauty of scenic Montgomery.
