Along the Rock River, just shy of the Wisconsin-Illinois border, you’ll find Roscoe, Illinois, located in Winnebago County. The county name was originally derived from the Winnebago Tribe of American Indians. In 1837, when Stephenson and Boone County were created, the land making up Winnebago County was drastically reduced. The Village of Roscoe is a suburb of the Rockford Metropolitan area with a population of almost 11,000 people. In fact, Winnebago county is the seventh most populous county in all of Illinois. While Roscoe wasn’t incorporated until 1965, it had been a stagecoach stop for travelers heading west since the1820’s. Today, when you travel to Roscoe, you will find an abundance of top-rated schools, loads of recreational activities, and unmatched municipal services.
