The Village of Greenup Welcomes You

On behalf of the Village of Greenup, Illinois, as Mayor, I welcome you to our beautiful historic town with many shops and attractions to spend a little extra time visiting.

Mayor Tom Bauguss - Village of Greenup, IL

Greenup, known as the Village of the Porches is nestled between Interstate 70, IL RT 40 and IL RT 130. Our little piece of heaven is home to over 1300 residents. The business district is listed on the National Registry of Historic Buildings. Our Main Street (Cumberland St./Illinois RT 121) is also part of the National Road. As you drive down “Main” you will encounter attractive old architecture as well as beautiful overhanging porches lining most of the downtown buildings. Underneath these porches you will find everything from quaint antique stores to today’s newest looks. Be sure to stop at the several locations throughout our lovely little Village and enjoy a terrific meal or dessert.

Greenup is home to several small businesses including EVAPCO, which employs over 400 people and to the Cumberland County Fair. Just a little further to the east is our beloved Covered Bridge spanning across the Embarras River.

Once again, as Mayor, I, Thomas A. Bauguss not only invite, but welcome you to come visit our charming little village.

Very Truly Yours,
Thomas A. Bauguss
Village Mayor
