      Chatham Illinois: An Excellent Township
      I experienced a terrific time while living in Chatham Illinois. The city sits in Sangamon County. Chatham is close to Springfield Illinois. The village of Chatham has an adequate public school system. The district was awarded for their educational excellence for elementary and high school grade levels. The city has great career possibilities for newcomers and various housing prospects are available. It is not expensive to live in the area and there is always a strong presence of security there. The weather is very decent for the location.

      Some of the best areas in Chatham Illinois surround the Caldwell Farmstead. This is a historical space that is registered as a national landmark. The town is conveniently located near major cities. It was always great to take a day trip to either St. Louis or Chicago at the spur of the moment. Chatham is great for families. The communities are diverse and extremely welcoming. There is a lot of emphasis in school sports here, so it’s great to see families get together to enjoy the after-school activities.
