Chandlerville Cemetery River Valley Overlook

Chandlerville Cemetery River Valley Overlook

Chandlerville, Cass County

This cenotaph and overlook are at the very top of the river bluff overlooking Chandlerville and the Illinois River valley. The Sangamon River flows just north of town, and joins the Illinois River at Beardstown, about 15 miles to the west. Below the cenotaph is a small native hill prairie, which is a surviving remnant of the extensive prairies that once existed across much of Illinois.
