About Peoria

Peoria, Illinois, located along the Illinois River, is a city rich in history and culture. It was founded in 1691 by French explorers and was later named after the Peoria tribe of Native Americans. The city played a significant role in the development of the Midwest, particularly in the transportation industry. In the 19th century, Peoria became a major hub for river transportation, with steamboats carrying goods and passengers along the Illinois River. The city's strategic location made it an ideal center for trade, and it quickly grew into a bustling industrial and commercial hub.

Today, Peoria continues to be an important transportation hub, with a well-developed freight transportation network. The city is served by major highways, including Interstate 74 and Interstate 474, which connect it to other major cities in the region. Peoria also has a thriving airport, the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport, which provides air cargo services and connects the city to various destinations across the country. Additionally, the Illinois River remains an important transportation route for barges carrying goods such as coal, grain, and petroleum products.
