Okawville has long enjoyed its reputation as home to the only remaining mineral springs resort in Illinois. For many years, excursion trains brought guests to the baths for the therapeutic effects of the mineral water. Originally founded as Bridgeport in 1838, it wasn't until the mid 1870's that Germans immigrated, renaming the community Okawville. As you drive or stroll through the streets of town, you can't help noticing the community's German heritage reflected in its well kept homes with their neatly trimmed lawns and lovely landscaped yards. The residents of Okawville invite you to visit their quaint community. It is a charming place offering gracious hospitality and quiet relaxation.
