Allerton Park and Retreat Center

Built as a private residence in 1900, Allerton Park and Retreat Center is a historical treasure that was donated to the University of Illinois in 1946. Located in Monticello, IL, about 25 miles from the Urbana-Champaign campus, the property contains 1,500 acres of woodland and prairie areas, a Georgian-inspired mansion and reflecting pond, several lodging facilities, a 10-acre meadow, formal sculpture gardens, and hiking trails.

Allerton is available to host a wide range of events including meetings, conferences, weddings, retreats, and special events. Overnight accommodations are also available.

Visit Central Illinois’ “best kept secret” and discover why it is considered one of the Seven Wonders of Illinois! Free; open 8 a.m. to sunset.
