Quality of Life
One of the most endearing characteristics of Heyworth is its small town values. Community safety, superior schools and social enrichment are top community priorities. Heyworth boasts excellent local police protection, a volunteer fire department, local 24-hour ambulance service, local schools grades K-12, several churches of various denominations and a variety of social activities throughout the year. Heyworth manages its own water and wastewater treatment systems and electricity and natural gas is provided by Ameren/IL. Cable and DSL service is available and the library has a newer facility providing a large variety of materials and services.
Now with a population of approximately 3,000, Heyworth is one of the fastest growing communities in rural McLean County. Residential living is as diverse as the community itself. Whether you prefer the seclusion of country living, or the convenience of a home in town, Heyworth has affordable new construction opportunities and existing real estate available for home buyers with any stylistic preference or price range.
One of the largest draws to McLean County is that it offers easy access to more than 30 million people who live within 300 miles. Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis are each just over two hours away by car and twelve major metro areas are located within a 450-mile radius. The Central Illinois Regional Airport is just 12 miles away, with commercial airlines and jet services.
