Amboy is a historic village in north central Illinois. Located in Lee County, twelve miles south of Dixon, Illinois, President Ronald Regans home town. Today, the Depot Museum and Depot Days serve as a strong reminder of those hardy people, immigrants from Germany, Italy, and England. Amboy Depot Days is a celebration of our rich history and multicultural traditions. The Depot was built in 1876. In 1992, the Museum was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Incorporated in 1857, Amboy is richly and uniquely American and Midwest. Its fine churches, schools and parks, and safe environment make it an ideal retirement community as well as a wholesome place to bring up a family. The housing stock of different architectural styles is more than adequate. There is ample room for growth, new residential construction, the high-end kind. We want new businesses, we will aggressively seek new business, all the while honoring and appreciating those already here.
