Mount Carroll

A thriving post village, the capital of Carroll county, on Carroll creek, 210 miles north from Springfield.

There is also here a fine seminary, under competent management, from which are sent out yearly numbers of young men and women as teachers for the schools of the west. Two newspaper offices, one Free Mason lodge, one lodge of Odd Fellows, and an encampment belonging to the same order.
