Ghost Town of Starved Rock Country, Twin Bluffs, Illinois

The area around the LaSalle County Asylum & Poor Farm (now LaSalle County Nursing Home) is of great significance to the develpment of Starved Rock Country. This location keeps popping up when I’m researching unrelated items. That’s pretty much how research goes but, this is probably one of the least remembered parts of our area. It’s featured on our Indian Burial Mounds & Forgotten Graveyards Tour, Haunted Ottawa History Tours and Starved Rock History Tours, all for different reasons.

Watch the video, leave your comments and enjoy!

P.S. The first recorded tavern was also on this site!! So, now it’s on the Wine Through Time Tour
