The city of Elmwood, located in western Peoria County, has a population of more than 2,000. Founded in 1854, Elmwood has preserved its architectural appeal, including Lorado Taft's statue, "The Pioneers." The sculpture, (10 feet tall and 3,500 pounds), depicts a pioneer family looking westward, symbolizing the pioneers' westward expansion. The sculpture was dedicated in 1928.

The close-knit and actively engaged community hosts a number of events including the Elmwood Strawberry Festival, the Elmwood Fall Festival, the Elmwood All Outdoors Show and the Elmwood Tour of Homes, which are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Residents work hard to preserve the heritage and beauty of the city of Elmwood for future generations.
