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 searching our website. Then, explore the possibilities first-hand by planning a trip.
As everyone in Big Rock knows drainage is always a big issue. During big rains we always have large amounts of standing water that seems to take forever to drain. A few years ago the Northside drainage District was reformed and has actively been considering options to improve the water flow. This summer in a joint effort the village, Township, and/or site drainage district will be working on a project on the east end of town replacing a large section of pipe that is deteriorating. We're hoping this project will help move water out of town a little quicker. We are also working with the BSNF railroad to try and fix the problem along Route 30 on the west end of town. We have a large pool of water that is probably a good 8 to 10 feet deep that was created when the railroad replaced large culverts underneath the tracks. This is causing water to push back to the north side of Route 30 and flood people's yards.
