The Growth of The Land of Lincoln.

Early in the 20th century as the United States advanced from an agrarian to an industrial nation, one historian described The State of Illinois as having a more significant history than any other state beyond the original 13 states.  Throughout the twentieth century, Illinois has sustained that prominence and takes pride in doing so!

The War of 1812 was significant in Illinois history as the veterans of that war against England to solidify our independence begin receiving 160-acre land warrants in the Illinois Military Tract. That is a region between the Illinois and Mississippi rivers. In 1818 we gained our stripes as Illinois became the 21st state in the Union.

Today, here in the Fox Valley, we believe that we have the best of both worlds…a big city to the east and a more suburban and agriculture lifestyle close to the nest. I pledge to take care of your plumbing needs again in 2021 as I have done for decades. My name is Scott Swanson of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my family to yours.
