Historic Golconda Tour


Golconda is one of the oldest towns in Illinois and most of the town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In fact, it was the 25th historic place approved in the State of Illinois.

Located on the banks of the Ohio River in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest and the county seat of Pope County, Golconda is an idyllic small town deeply rooted in its rich history, but with an eye to the future. A plaque in City Hall declares the entire town as “Historic Golconda”, a designation reserved for only a handful of localities in Illinois.
