Located 24 miles southeast of Chicago, the town of St. John is filled with quiet neighborhoods and quality schools and churches.
St. John is a well-planned community. An extensive bicycle and pedestrian trail winds through lovely subdivisions. Over 20 well-equipped parks and an active Park program provides a myriad of activities for all residents. The town has many local specialty shops and selected larger retail stores.
The original design for the town logo was submitted by Lisa Kuffel in 1981 when she won a contest sponsored by the St. John Chamber of Commerce. Years later the logo was trademarked. The logo appears on the Municipal Building Sign, all official stationary, and Town Vehicles.
Whether you have a growing family or you’re empty nesters, St. John has something to offer.
