Oregon, Illinois Still Quiet, Still Serene.

Shouldering the banks of the scenic Rock River, Oregon is a town of great history and singular wonders-unmatched in Northern Illinois. Our rural charm flows from the rolling river valley. We are a place rich in cultural heritage influenced by the creative efforts of those artists who once lived at Eagle's Nest, high on the bluffs above the Rock River. Lorado Taft 's sculpture "The Eternal Indian", more commonly known as "Blackhawk" now stands on the site.
