Lamplighter street map

The Lamplighter subdivision was developed on a seventy-eight acre tract of farm ground immediately south of, and bordering on, the village limits of Towanda. There are a total of 98 building lots, a tennis court lot and park site with a pond for fishing and swimming. The location, about six miles north and east of Normal and Bloomington, is ideal for those families desiring small community living but close to the shopping and services that Bloomington and Normal offer.

Walnut Grove Street Map

Walnut Grove subdivision is located 1 1/2 miles northeast of Towanda on old Route 66.  Many of the eleven homes in the Walnut Grove subdivision were built by the Barton Corporation between 1955 - 1958. Barton was the contractor who was also building Route 66 during this time. He purchased land along Route 66 and during the winter months (Dec-Jan-Feb) he had his foreman and crew build homes in what is now Walnut Grove subdivision.
