The true heart of the Midwest

When Sycamore first started out in the mid 1800’s the town was known for their raising of corn, but by the early 1880’s Sycamore had developed into an industrial town. Once the manufacturing companies were built, the town’s population increased. Locals as well as non-residents look forward to the town’s yearly Sycamore Pumpkin Festival. This festival was started when in 1962 resident Wally Thurow began displaying pumpkins in his front lawn. Today, Sycamore is still considered a classic small town where historic architecture is still present and the business district is within walking distance. Residents love the charm that Sycamore has and the friendly faces you see passing through town.
