Farmington stands out as an extraordinary, warm, and family-focused community, situated a mere 25 miles west of Peoria on Route 116. Embracing the serene comforts of rural life, residents also relish the proximity—within just thirty minutes—of vibrant city offerings, the Greater Peoria Regional Airport, and vital interstate connections. With its charming small-town ambiance, Farmington provides an idyllic setting to cherish life’s treasures and foster a nurturing environment for families to thrive.

Community leaders are working to preserve the community’s history with a vision for development and progress. The City established a Tax Increment Financing District in 2014 that has resulted in financial assistance for the restoration of many of the businesses in the Downtown Historical District as well as to other commercial properties. Since 2018, the use of TIF funds has also enabled numerous homeowners to take advantage of residential renovations and improvements with grants of up to $2000.00 each.

Each year Farmington participates and hosts multiple events and fairs as well as the Spoon River Drive, with parades for the Fourth of July and the Farmington Farmers Homecoming. Learn more about the Farmers by visiting the District #265 website here.

Farmington is proud of its K-12 school complex constructed in 2004 and the Farmington Area Public Library building built in 2014, the many choices for worship available, and its parks and friendly, walkable streets.
