The Great River Road in Illinois

Founded in 1852, the entire village of Maeystown is on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally settled by immigrants from southwestern Germany, the Bavarian Rheinpfalz, Jacob Maeys settle here because of his plans to build a sawmill on the large spring at the site. In addition to Zeitinger's Mill, Maey's log home, and the original stone church, sixty historically significant buildings remain as well as stone walls, flagstone gutters, and structures built into the landscape. Be sure to visit the Corner George Inn, general store, kaffeehaus, sweet shoppe, museum and visitors center.
