The city was first settled in 1834 and before the Civil War the area was dominated by settlers coming west from New York and New England, searching for new lives and adventures out west, and the city was merely a sleepy country village up until the outbreak of the Civil War, where the city established itself as an industrial center, making many of the munitions that the Army of the Tennessee used during its campaigns. Today, the city is known for its high manufacturing base, well above the national average, and is well-known for making toys that are sold throughout the world. Today, though it has well over 150,000 people living there, it still is considered a smaller town.

The city, like most other cities in Illinois (and, indeed, the rest of the Midwest), has four clearly defined seasons, with summer temperatures hitting around 85 degrees as its average high, and average lows bottoming out around 59 degrees. During the winter, snowfall is fairly common, and average highs rarely peak above 40 degrees, with average lows hitting around 20 degrees, well below freezing temperatures.
