Effingham Overview

On a recent roadtrip to St. Louis, we made an overnight stop at Effingham, Illinois, a small town in Central Illinois. We were pleasantly surprised at the town’s offerings, and if we ever find ourselves in the area, we will be back!

  • See what all the hype is about at John Boos & Company where they make specialty cutting boards and butcher blocks. Even celebrity chefs such as Emeril and The Cake Boss use butcher blocks from this oldest industry in Effingham. There’s even a discounted section of butcher blocks! A definite must-stop!
