Welcome to Grayville, Illinois. Grayville, in White County
Illinois, is a place to explore and discover history, natural
beauty and entertainment amenities. Interstate 64, just south of
town provides visitors a gateway into Southeastern Illinois. The
county lies along Illinois Rt. 1, which was constructed at the
turn of the 20th century to link travelers from Chicago to Cairo.
Visitors enjoy several
unique White County festivals throughout the year. Hundreds
attend and enjoy Grayville Days in early September over the Labor Day
weekend. This is our traditional harvest celebration which marks the
end of summer and beginning of fall. Many former residents and
families return for this celebration and reunion.
The rolling hills and river bottoms offers many hunting and fishing
opportunities. Pleasure craft enjoy putting in at Grayville's boat
dock and motoring out into the Wabash River for fishing and water
skiing. There is a challenging nine-hole golf course located close by
in Carmi. Grayville's pool is busy during the summer months. Just
across the Wabash near I-64 is historic New Harmony, Indiana home of
four star dining at the Red Geranium, Paul Tillich Memorial Park, The
Roofless Church, and more.
Back in the 1800s when the early settlers came to this area by way of
the Wabash River, they found a paradise waiting to be developed, a
land of opportunity for all. In the 200 years since, the town of
Grayville has been founded and settled by friendly, hard-working
citizens who welcome you to join them for a visit or a lifetime.
Everybody has a friend in Grayville. Come. See for yourself.
