2016's BEST & WORST CITIES FOR ILLINOIS FAMILIES

wallethub 2016 report best and worst cities for families in illinoisHave you seen WalletHub's recent findings on the best and worst cities for Illinois families for 2016?

We are excited to see Frankfort ranked #9 of the 162 towns on the list!  It was also shortlisted in a few other categories including Most Playgrounds per Capita. Other towns in which our museum members reside also made the list, including New Lenox, Mokena, Lockport and Homer Glen! 

Frankfort's Mayor Jim Holland said of the report, "This is great news for our community! Our residents have always considered Frankfort a great place to live, and we are thrilled with this study's confirmation to be one of the best."
