The city of Arcola was founded in 1855. In the countryside near Arcola is a prominent community of Old Order Amish, the largest in Illinois.
There is an Old Order Amish Museum opened in 1996 and features exhibits on most aspects of Amish life, as well as an introductory video about the Central Illinois Amish.
