Fulton is a charming river town located in Whiteside County in northwest Illinois. As of the 2000 census, the population was 3,881. Known for its pride in its Dutch heritage, Fulton boasts a traditional Dutch windmill that is located near the citys dike, which borders the Mississippi River. This quaint town offers a great view of the Mississippi River and other attractions like the Civil War era Martin House Museum, Heritage Canyon, Lock and Dam 13, two National Scenic By-ways and a Great River Bike Trail. Fulton was originally called Baker's Ferry after the first settler in 1835. However, the town's name was soon changed to Fulton in honor of the famed steamboat inventor, Robert Fulton. During steam boating days, the town of Fulton was a transfer and warehouse port between the upper and lower reaches of the Mississippi River. Due to Fulton's strong Dutch ancestry, the community celebrates with the popular Dutch Days Festival the first weekend each May. This family festival includes a parade, arts & crafts, food stands, windmill tours and Dutch dancing and costumes. Heritage Canyon, in Fulton, has buildings representing the 1800's era, including an old school house, church, doctor's office, printing press, and more.

Surrounding areas: Apple Canyon Lake, Illinois (39.3 mi)
