Collinsville is a city of approximately 25,000, located in southwestern Illinois. It lies mostly within Madison County and partially in St. Clair County. It is only 12 miles from St. Louis, Missouri. Collinsville is called the "Horseradish Capital of the World," and has held an annual International Horseradish Festival for over two decades. This "spicy" festival features free entertainment, a craft fair, lots of food booths, a horseradish cooking contest and much more. Collinsville's other claim to fame is being home to the world's largest catsup bottle. Called "roadside architecture at its best," the catsup bottle is located on Highway 159 at the south edge of the city and was constructed in 1949. Collinsville is also home to the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, which has been a United Nations World Heritage Site since 1982. This site is the largest archaeological site in America and is the home of Monks Mound, the largest prehistoric earthen construction in the New World. The site also features an interpretive center and gift shop. Other attractions in Collinsville include a water park and family fun park, an annual Italian Festival and a vital, historic downtown area with shops, restaurants and businesses.
