LIVE with intent

@ harpster

Love where you live

Founded in 1871, the Village of Harpster owes its roots to the Illinois Central Railroad, which transformed this land into a small community. Although it peaked at just 50 residents, Harpster once was a bustling hub that supported railroad workers and travelers who boarded from or traveled through “Harpster Station”. During its prime, the village boasted a school, church, general store, feed store, and gas station, which remained until the mid-1970s.

While the landscape may have changed over time, our mission remains rooted in its founding spirit: build intentional connections and foster a sense of community.
