"Wow, the people are really nice here, like people used to be." We hear that a lot in our community. Because Randolph County is home to the World Shooting & Recreational Complex and Popeye, and because our community is where Illinois began, and because of our Mississippi and Kaskaskia River heritage, we receive thousands of visitors each year from all corners of the world. They come by air, by motor vehicle and even via the Mississippi when the riverboats dock in Chester. What they leave with is the feeling of goodness and respect that we in Randolph County live by.

The communities of Randolph County are as individual as fingerprints. Each has a unique identity ... a distinctive culture and history. But we also have common interests and a loyalty to each other seldom seen today. Communities help one another with projects, promotions, causes and concerns. There is no pretension here. The man who takes out the trash may have breakfast with the wealthiest man in the community without a second thought about it. Each has the highest respect for the other. We understand that being the best we can be begins with a genuine concern for one another. And we practice that every day. The way it was ... is the way it is in Randolph County communities.
