About Rochester

Rochester is a multi-faceted community, a village that has retained its small-town charm and friendly atmosphere despite being located only a few miles from a metropolitan area. What began as a farming community more than one hundred fifty years ago is now one of the fastest growing areas in central Illinois.

Located seven miles from the state capitol of Springfield and connected by a four-lane highway, Rochester offers the benefits of a small town with the conveniences of a larger city nearby. Explore our website and view all that the community has to offer.

Population: 3689
