About Mattoon, IL

Mattoon, Illinois is located in Coles County and has a population of about 18,500 according to the 2010 census.

The town is known for hosting popular celebrations and festivals throughout the year such as Bagelfest and Lightworks, which is Mattoon’s annual festival of holiday lights around Christmas.
Mattoon’s name is in honor of a man named William Mattoon who helped construct the Terre Haute and Alton Railroad. Because of the railroad junction, Mattoon became the ideal location for settlers in 1854. Mattoon quickly prospered as more families and businesses moved to the new community. There were over 100 buildings by 1856 and the town continued to grow and expand ever since.
