Just a few miles west of Champaign on U.S. 150, Mahomet is one of the fastest-growing communities in downstate Illinois.
Located adjacent to scenic Lake of the Woods Park, Mahomet offers a variety of recreational opportunities, including biking and walking paths, fishing and boating, the Hartwell C. Howard Golf Course and the Mabery Gelvin Botanical Garden.
Exhibits at the nearby Early American Museum focus on early agriculture, daily life, settlement and the growth and development of Champaign County.
Earlier this year a new public library opened on the community’s east side.
