Illinois Storage Facilities

Finding a reliable storage facility in Illinois is very easy. Depending on the storage period, size, and other special needs there are different storage options for you to choose from.

Found in the Midwest region, Illinois became the nation's 21st state back in 1818. It is nicknamed "The Prairie State" because of the prairie grasses that once covered the state's area. This state is also known as the "Land of Lincoln" because the President Abraham Lincoln spent a majority of his life and career in Illinois.

Origin of State's Name: Illinois is from the French form of an Algonquin Indian word for "warriors or tribe of superior men." This word was also the name of a tribe that once thrived in the area during the arrival of the French settlers and explorers. Illinois is bordered by Wisconsin to the north, Lake Michigan to the north east, Iowa and Missouri to the west, Indiana to the east and Kentucky to the south.

Capital City: The city of Springfield in Sangamon County is Illinois's current capital. It was named so in 1839 and is the third city to be named as the state's capital. Springfield is populated with about 118,033 people as of 2009.

Population: As of 2009, Illinois is home to about 12,910,409 people. It is the state with the fifth highest population in the United States.

Driving: Information on driver's licenses, requirements, tests and applications are all found on the Cyber Drive Illinois website.

Agriculture and Industry: The manufacturing industry in Illinois is very diverse. Machinery, cooking products and appliances are some of the products of this industry. Coal mining and oil production are also major industries in the state. Agriculture in Illinois includes dairy, poultry and vegetables. Illinois is one of the top producers of corn and soybeans.

State Bird: The cardinal was chosen as Illinois's state bird by its school children in 1928.

State Tree: The white oak is the state tree of Illinois. Back in 1973, a poll of about 900,000 school children resulted in its selection as the State's Official Tree. Before that, the Native Oak was previously chosen in a poll back in 1907.

State Flower: The violet was chosen in a poll by school children back in 1907 in a similar fashion to the selection of the state tree and bird. It was approved by the general assembly as the official State Flower the following year.

State Song: "Illinois" was written by C.H. Chamberlain and composed by Archibald Johnston, and serves as a song of praise for the state. This song was established as the State Song in the 54th General Assembly in 1955.
