In the 1850s two railroad companies, the Illinois Central Railroad and the Terre Haute - Alton Railroad realized that their rail lines would intersect one another in southeastern Illinois. It was also agreed that the company that reached the intersection first would not have to pay to maintain the crossing in the future. A race ensured and as word got out of the race, investors began to speculate and develop the area of land where the two railroads would cross. This area would eventually become the town of Mattoon, Illinois. Today, the city of Mattoon is nestled in the heart of Coles County, Illinois. It covers an area of ten square miles and is home to over 18,500 citizens.
