About Chester, IL - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

Chester, Illinois is best known for being the “Home of Popeye.”  However, that is not the only thing that residents have to brag about.   Mark Twain is said to have stayed at Chester's Cliff House while travelling the Mississippi River and even mentioned the blue windows of the town’s Cohen Home in Life on the Mississippi. It was also a shooting location for the 1993’s “The Fugitive.” The town has a great deal to offer to anyone looking for a quiet but fun place to live.  The cultural significance and history of the town paired with its moderate seasonal weather make it an almost idyllic Midwestern small town.

In town, you will find that they have erected a 6-foot statue of Popeye the Sailor Man, as well as smaller granite statues of the other Popeye characters.   The bronze sculpture can be found in the Elzie C. Segar Memorial Park.  The park is actually named for the creator of the beloved character.   Chester's biggest event of the year is the Popeye Picnic and parade, held annually on the weekend after Labor Day. The festivities are mostly free and totally family-friendly. The activities include carnival rides, music, talent shows, horseback rides and games for the kids and, of course, FOOD!  It is the ideal way to celebrate the town’s love of Popeye while saying farewell to summer weather and getting ready for the chilly air and autumn leaves that will arrive soon.

The area is full of things to do.  State parks and historic sites are abundant and keep visitors and residents entertained and educated. The Pierre Menard Home, for example, is a well-preserved and absolutely stunning example of French Creole-style architecture. The Liberty Bell of the West, is located near a church on Kaskaskia Island and is actually older than the Liberty Bell that we have all heard of in Philadelphia.  A gift from King Louis XV, this bell is an important piece of history for the area.  Just a few miles outside of Chester is the Randolph County State Recreation Area.  The park features a 65-acre lake, trails for horseback riding and hiking and more.  Fishing is a great way to spend a warm spring or summer day at the park.  In addition, part of the Middle Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge is located in town.
