Elkhart is located 17 miles from the I-55 Clear Lake Ave exit in Springfield & 11 miles from the I-55 Woodlawn Rd exit in Lincoln.  This central location is very appealing for couples working in either or both cities.

When it comes to shopping and weekend getaways, we are centrally located for that as well.

 

  • 13 miles to Walmart on Woodlawn Rd in Lincoln

  • 16 miles to North Dirksen Pkwy (Lowes/Menards) in Springfield

  • 27 miles to Veterans (White Oaks Mall) in Springfield

  • 45 miles to Veterans Pkwy (Shopping District) in Bloomington

  • 50 miles to Downtown Peoria

  • 118 miles to Downtown St Louis

  • 180 miles to Downtown Chicago or Woodfield Mall


In addition to its appealing location, we are part of one of the finest school systems in Illinois.  Mount Pulaski District 23 was ranked #1 in Central Illinois for the results of the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE).
