Dear Citizens, Friends and Neighbors,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees I would like to welcome you to the Village of Philo, Illinois website. Aptly referred to as "The Center of the Universe," Philo is a rural community approximately 8 miles south of Urbana-Champaign, home of the University of Illinois. We are justly proud of our community, its residents, and the churches, schools and businesses that all contribute to the outstanding quality of life that residents enjoy. We sincerely hope that our website provides you with the information that you desire.

Respectfully,image of L. R. Franks, Village President
