Freeport, Illinois is a small mid western town about 100 miles NW of Chicago. Gerald McClellan a WBO and WBC middleweight champion, Deacon Davis of the Harlem Globetrotters, Preston Pearson an NFL football star, and Robert Johnson, the founder of BET, were all born and raised in Freeport. Calista Flockhart from 'Ally McBea'l was also born there.

The famous Lincoln-Douglas debate of 1858 took place in Freeport and the Billibeck pretzel factory thrived there in the late 1800's. The Freeport High School mascot, to this day, is a pretzel! PRETZEL POWER!

Freeport has more than 800 acres of parks with many activities. At the beautiful Krape Park there is miniature golf, tennis courts, 2 waterfalls, an old-fashioned carousel and firetruck with a fireman's pole. You can also rent a paddle boat to cruise the lovely Yellow Creek.
