Our mission at St. Joseph Today is to enhance the image and recognition of the area, to encourage and assist business and tourism development and to augment the effort of governmental units. We are dedicated to businesses, residents and interested friends of the area. Peaceful. Unspoiled. Just 90 miles from Chicago, you will find a beautifully restored downtown with brick streets and scores of small and stores, the size just right for a relaxed amble. If you don't feel like walking, hitch a ride on a horse drawn trolley ride.
