This will require some adjustments to our normal routines, and we appreciate your patience during this time. At this time if you need us contact us via phone or email using the links below.

The Lamplighter subdivision was developed on a seventy-eight acre tract of farm ground at the southern edge of 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 northeast of Bloomington/Normal, is ideal for families desiring small community living close to the shopping and services that Bloomington and Normal offer.

Indian Creek

The Indian Creek subdivision is located about two miles north of Towanda in Money Creek Township on Country Road 29. There are 88 homes nestled among the trees and along the shores of Money Creek.

The subdivision includes a maintained nature area of approximately 60 acres in the common grounds in low areas along the creek.

Walnut Grove

The 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.
