    Makanda got its start in 1845 as a boarding house and construction camp for the Illinois Central Railroad. Makanda was been known by several names - Markanda, Markands and Markauda. In 1872, it received its present name of Makanda after a local Indian chief. The village was incorporated in 1888. Makanda has survived multiple floods and fires that have claimed downtown buildings and also surrounding buildings and houses. Each time the town was rebuilt.

    Present day Makanda is a small, thriving community, home to unique shops and businesses on the downtown boardwalk. Makanda is also the Gateway to Giant City State Park with the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail and the scenic River to River Trail passing through the village.
