Teutopolis, Illinois is a place where people and neighbors still look after each other’s kids, watch over each other’s houses, and share laughter and good times together. Teutopolis is located within three miles of Effingham, in the “Heartland of America” and still thrives on the discipline and values that have made Teutopolis a success since its establishment in 1839. We have a small town atmosphere with a limitless entrepreneurial spirit, cultural heritage, rural character and natural environment with a positive environment for business and industry. Community service is alive and well in T-Town. The region’s natural beauty, coupled with abundant amenities, makes it an excellent place to live.


Village President, Greg Hess, welcomes all to the community. To contact Greg you may call 217-663-2108 or message him by email.
