City Facts for Collinsville, IL

Located midway between Edwardsville and Belleville, Collinsville is a small suburb of St. Louis in the Metro East area of the city. It is located mainly in Madison and partially in St. Clair Counties. The city is made up of the original town on the river bluff and the surrounding expansion, including the Gateway Conference Center, near the I-70. The city has a small-town Midwestern feel and its “uptown” section is undergoing an exciting revitalization. The city has some interesting claims to fame: it is the “Horseradish Capital of the World,” and home to the world’s largest catsup bottle, which is also its water tower. On a more serious note, it is also home to a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site.

It’s said the area produces 85% of the world’s supply of horseradish, and each year the city sponsors an annual Horseradish Festival to celebrate its world-renowned gourmet herb. There’s even a Root Derby in which entrants make derby cars out of real horseradish root and race them during the festivities! Home to a large ethnic Italian population, the city also hosts an annual Italian festival offering delicious foods, live music and, of course, Italian ices.

Architectural styles in Collinsville include French Second Empire, Carpenter Gothic Revival, Cottage, and Italianate. The city was built on a hard-working ethic and it still strives today to be the perfect home for its residents.
