Welcome to Freeport, Illinois

Welcome to the official Freeport, Illinois website. We’re happy that you’re visiting us!

Freeport is a wonderful mix of old and new. Fortune 500 companies like Newell Rubbermaid occupy some of the oldest buildings downtown, while antique stores and mom-and-pop restaurants enjoy software developers as neighbors. Turn-of-the-century Victorian homes co-exist with modern senior-living facilities. We have a leading-edge hospital and cancer center, but our history of quality healthcare extends back into the 1800’s. Our excellent schools, from preschool to community college, offer both traditional and up-to-the-minute tools needed to excel in the future, and our state-of-the-art library is located in the heart of our historic city center.
