South Beloit

The City of South Beloit was incorporated in 1917. Located on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin, along the scenic riverfront of the Rock River, the city is easily accessible off interstate highways I-90, I-39 and I-43.


Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison are all within 90 miles. South Beloit’s location, costs and friendly residents make the city a great place to live, work, learn and play. Retail businesses and manufacturers realize the great value in the location and are “growing with small town values.”

Good schools, beautiful parks and easy access are just some of the reasons to live in South Beloit. The City Park features a large man-made lake that is perfect for fishing, hiking, biking and enjoying nature. Tennis courts, ball fields, picnic areas and a War Memorial draw thousands of visitors to the park annually. The historic Bushnell Wheeler home (shown), an Italianate Villa completed in 1856 for Reverend Alexander Montgomery, has been restored to its former glory and is home to the South Beloit Historical Society. The historic building contains a local area history room and library and is the site of an annual Christmas Open House and summer band concerts in the gazebo. The Roscoe Antique Mall, located in South Beloit, draws visitors from far and wide. South Beloit – it’s a great place to be!
