Attractions

Living Legacy Farmstead

3759 N. 900 Blvd., Mount Carmel

Open: By Appointment only

Experience what farm life was like at this turn-of-the-century farmstead. The house was originally a log house from the 1870s. The log house portion of the structure is the original homestead to which my enterprising German ancestors added the 'modern' 1902 farmhouse.

On the property see the Summer Cottage, Barn, Bunk House, Tool Shed, Hen House and more.

Follow the blue directional tourism signs that are located in Bellmont. The Farmstead is 10 miles from Mt. Carmel, Grayville, and Albion.

16 Class C Camping Sites, Restrooms, Phone

Enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, picnicking and hunting at Beall Woods (pronounced Bell). While a working farm owned by the Beall family since the 1880s, almost half of the 635 acres consisted of forest that had never been cleared. Located on the banks of the Wabash River 6 miles south of Mt. Carmel in Wabash County, Beall Woods today is a 329-acre old-growth forest and one of few remaining virgin forests on the east side of the Mississippi River. It was dedicated in 1966 as an Illinois Nature Preserve and is also registered as a National Landmark. Don't miss the new interactive Visitor's Center with exhibits and educational displays explaining the natural history of the area.

There are more than 300 trees in the preserve that measure more than 120 feet tall with diameters close to three feet.

The park offers five hiking trails that provide an excellent view of the forest.

There is also a 15-acre lake that is stocked with bass, blue gill, catfish, and trout for anglers.

Other park activities include hunting in season, camping and picnicking.
