Experience the Lacon Gateway Along the Illinois River Road
Originally called Columbia, Lacon was given its current name in 1836 after a philosophical writing by C.C. Colton. With a bridge connecting the east and west river byway routes, you’ll be welcomed with friendly, small town charm and plenty to see and do in this community. Dine in one of Lacon’s many unique restaurants and visit Lacon’s numerous shops. Lacon is home to a marina and boat launch, as well as some of the best eagle viewing and panoramic views around.
