Tazewell County




This is the history of the people, places and daily life of Tazewell County, in pictures

This area of the Tazewell County web site has been reserved to display the pictures and postcards you may have squirreled away in your attics or closets.  We accept all contributions--pictures of families, pictures of individuals, farm scenes, historical buildings, historical street scenes, or whatever.  In short, we would be proud to display any historical or just plain old picture of Tazewell County.

Two of the pictures in the header are from my family collection, as are any pictures in this section not credited to a donor. The third picture in the header, an aerial view of Pekin, is from the un-copyrighted book, "Pekin and Its Environs" published by Richard Acton in Chicago, Illinois.

Thanks in advance for your picture contributions!
