Kankakee is located in North East Illinois and is only 60 miles South of Chicago. The city was founded in 1853 but long before that, Native Americans called the spot “Kankakee” which translates to “beautiful land”. In present-day Kankakee, the river still flows, trains whistle in the night, and the county government still rules from downtown. Kankakee’s downtown is filled with remnants of the city’s past as well as some modern buildings. The Kankakee Farmers’ Market takes place every Saturday and is one of the most popular weekend destinations for miles. The Kankakee Train Depot has been carefully restored and is not utilized for hosting events and community gatherings and a daily attraction.
