Story of Carterville
Carterville is a charming, small town in the heart of Southern Illinois, an area many refer to as the “heartland.” Within 1.5 to 4 hours from favorite American cities of St. Louis, Nashville, Louisville, Lexington, and Memphis, Carterville is nestled as a gateway to fast-growing Southern Illinois Wine Country. In fact, this town is within an hour to 29 wineries you can enjoy in this region.
In observance of Independence Day, the Carterville City Hall, Water & Sewer Department, Street Department, and Maintenance Department will be closed Monday, July 4, 2016. All departments will open for normal business hours on Tuesday, July 5, 2016.
