The county seat, Pekin is the largest city in Tazewell County. Founded in 1824 and located in the heart of Illinois, the city is 165 miles southwest of Chicago and 163 miles northeast of St. Louis and 10 miles south of Peoria, IL. Pekin is now the Marigold Capital of the world.
A lifetime resident of Pekin, Illinois, I have been a Realtor since 1968. Along with my wife, Susan, we raised our four children in Pekin. We love Pekin and are proud to have made it our home. It is a community of warm and friendly people who take pride in combining hometown hospitality with city conveniences and culture.
Whether you are looking for an outstanding business community, a great place to live and raise a family, or a quiet little community to just sit back and enjoy life, Pekin is the place for you!
