The Mattoon Library was built with funds from Andrew Carnegie and is one of the many Carnegie libraries in Central Illinois. It hosts a number of activities for the children in the Mattoon area.
In Mattoon, you can eat at the original Burger King, which won its case against the corporate Burger King. The case set a precedent over trademark law that still stands to this day.
It is home to the Cross County Mall, which stands at the crossroads of Coles County and is home to a number of businesses and restaurants in and around the mall.
The downtown is thriving with local businesses and restaurants.
Come and enjoy this great community, and see what it has to offer.
