Have you ever wanted to own a piece of history? If so, then this is it! This Randolph County, Illinois property is located on the Missouri side of the Mississippi river. Yes, you read that right! After an earthquake and several floods many years ago, the Mississippi river changed its course, and by 1818, this part of Illinois was cut off from the rest of the state. Sitting a few miles south of Kaskaskia, Illinois, and just across the river from Chester, Illinois, sits this 171 acres +/- of mostly tillable Illinois land. Clearing of its timber in 1981 made way of roughly 85 acres of productive river bottom soils that's been planted in either beans or sorghum most years since. This past crop brought 40+ bushel per acre beans that were planted
