contentsStreator IL Chamberads



Incorporated in 1868, Streator’s beginnings are rooted in the coal mining industry—which, along with the establishment of railroads and manufacturing corporations, helped to fuel the prosperity of the then-fledgling town. The community has experienced significant development throughout the years and is today the area of more than 24,000 residents and numerous businesses.

Streator is a mature community led by a progressive legislative body that utilizes the City Manager-Council form of government. A Mayor, four City Council Members and a City Manager compose this municipal entity, which works together to ensure a high quality of life for City residents and businesses.

The community is well-supplied with a wealth of first-rate amenities, such as public safety through the City’s Fire and Police Departments, recreational facilities and services, excellent public and private educational institutions and unmatched medical care through St. Mary’s Hospital.


Additional senior health and residential care facilities include: Liberty Village, Heritage Manor and Evergreen Place, Camelot Manor and Streator Senior Apartments. A thriving Central Business District and ample retail possibilities only add to the appeal.

What’s more, a wide variety of residential opportunities are available in Streator, which includes quality single-family homes, spacious town home and condominium developments, comfortable apartment complexes and amenity-filled senior residential alternatives. The styles and price ranges are just as diversified, with everything from low-to-moderate home prices and upper-level custom designed residences. The area is home to many distinctive historic dwellings as well.

The City has maintained its valued Midwestern roots, all the while still incorporating thoughtful planning for the future that lies ahead. With all of this and more, Streator has proven itself to be a preeminent place for professionals and families, as well as businesses in search of a solid, prosperous economy.
