Did you know Peoria is the oldest settlement in Illinois? It’s a city filled with a rich history, and Moss Avenue was at the heart of it all. Home to former whiskey barons, financiers, the highest echelons of society, Peoria was also the home base for the shady underbelly of Prohibition Era Bootleggers. And now you can be a part of it.
That timeless real estate trope couldn’t be more true than here. We’ve always loved Moss Avenue—the cobblestone streets, the historic homes, the killer views, and the amazing neighborhood community, so finding a vacant lot on the street just seemed like the perfect choice for this project. The location was one of the many driving factors for this decision.
Moss Avenue is located just minutes from downtown, restaurants, shopping, and well within walking distance to Caterpillar, OSF, Unity Point, and historical Bradley University.
Moss Ave is an old-world neighborhood, and that feeling still exists in the rich community involvement. Year after year, Moss Ave is home to many of Peoria’s biggest events for artisans and entrepreneurs alike. Some of the most popular include Peoria’s First Friday, where many local art studios, restaurants, and vendors open their doors for exploration and experience. There is also the Annual Moss Ave. Market, where the street floods with local artists, builders, collectors, brewers, and bakers set up shop and invite you to join them. It’s one of the largest events in the community, and a treat to all who attend. And these are just a couple of the events that make Historic Moss Avenue a popular place for anyone lucky enough to call Peoria home.
