Effingham, which is located in the south-central part of the state, has long been called the Heart of America. And these days, the city is also known as The Crossroads of Opportunity because of its proximity to multiple interstate highways and state routes.
Effingham was first settled in 1814 by pioneers heading west along the Old Cumberland Trail, which later became the National Road (today's Highway 40). The county seat of Effingham County has a population of about 12,500 and was called Broughton until 1859.
You can expect chilly winters in Effingham followed by warm-to-hot summers. And when the weather is nice, you'll see that your neighbors love to head outdoors to hike, fish, play tennis…or even take in a round or two of golf at one of the area's three courses. There's also boating at nearby Lake Sara, which features 27 miles of wooded shoreline. Other popular nature-oriented sites include the TREC Calico Recreational Trail, Eagle Creek State Park, Shawnee National Forest, Lake Shelbyville, the Newton Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area, Evergreen Hollow Park and the Ballard Nature Center.
When you're ready to head back into town, be sure to check out some of Effingham's other favorite attractions—or check them out at least one more time if you're moving away from the area. Your itinerary should include the Effingham Performance Center, the Cross at the Crossroads, the Draves Museum, the MY Garage Corvette Museum, the Heart Theatre, Sculptures on the Avenues and the Effingham County Courthouse.
