Evansville is a small, historic village located in Randolph County in southwestern Illinois. It is situated on the eastern side of the Kaskaskia River, about ten miles from the mouth of the Mississippi River. The village sits in a very picturesque region among the beautiful rolling hills on the east bank of the river. Since the beginning, the Kaskaskia River has served an important role in the progress and vitality of Evansville. It was the site of a ferry after the year 1834 and has always provided excellent fishing for citizens of the area. Randolph County is filled with historical attractions. It is home to Fort de Chartres, a reconstructed 18th century stone fort on the Mississippi River, and Fort Kaskaskia State Historical Site. The Pierre Menard Home State Historic Site was built in the early 19th century for local fur trader, entrepreneur, and Illinois first Lt. Governor Pierre Menard. The home is the one of the finest examples of French Colonial architecture in the middle Mississippi River valley. Other attractions near Evansville include the Modoc Rock Shelter, Misselhorn Art Gallery, the Mary's River Covered Bridge and the Kaskaskia Bell State Historic Site. The Randolph County Conservation Area, located just minutes from Evansville, offers 1,101 acres for hiking, picnicking and fishing in a 65-acre lake.
