Although incorporated in 2001, the Village of Big Rock has a rich history and a rosy
future. Located just over and an hour west of Chicago, Big Rock is on the verge of
exciting City life, yet retains that "get-away-from-it-all" atmosphere with rolling
green meadows, picturesque pastures, and big-hearted community.
Our peaceful neighborhood offers the best nature has to offer with breathtaking parks
and preserves and bucolic farmland. And there's no better place to enjoy nostalgic
Americana than during the annual Plowing Match and other seasonal festivals.
Discover what makes Big Rock a great place to visit, live, and grow a business by
