St. Charles is located about 35 miles west of the Chicago Loop. In 1834, settlers quickly became attracted to the Fox River and everything else St. Charles had to offer. With so many prairies, extensive woods, and creeks that ran to the Fox River, St. Charles provided pristine fishing locations and plenty of space to expand. A popular Jeopardy question is “What is the Pickle capital of the world?” Surprisingly, St. Charles, IL is the correct answer. In 1892, Pickle Packers International was founded as a promotional agency in charge of educating consumers about the benefits of pickles.
St. Charles resident, William Moore, advertised by placing a pickle image on most packaged goods. He later created purses, earrings, greeting cards, and phones all in the shape of a pickle. Pickles aside, the town of St. Charles truly began to flourish by the end of the nineteenth century. As the area quickly developed, the town was extended for about half a mile in each direction from the Fox River. Downtown St. Charles is now home to theatres, boutique shopping, annual events, and an array of dining options, many of which overlook the Fox River.
With a downtown area jam-packed with entertainment, you’d think things couldn’t get any better.
