A slender stalk of sweet corn has been
Hoopeston’s backbone for more than a century, from the canning industries
which spurred the city’s growth, to its school mascot, the
internationally-known Cornjerker, to its annual Sweetcorn Festival,
sponsored by the Hoopeston Jaycees.
A farming community at heart, Hoopeston has
more to offer than just its agricultural roots. We have an excellent
school system, Carnegie library, health care campus including a hospital,
medical center, nursing home and independent living center, recreational
facilities, the historic Floral Hill Cemetery and more.
Our citizens take pride in their community and
have a ready smile and friendly greeting for all. Whether you’re looking
for a safe place to raise a family, a community in which to locate your
business, or a quiet location to spend your golden years, Hoopeston has
something to offer.
