History buffs will have plenty of things to do & sites to discover during their stay in the Carlyle Lake area with opportunities to learn about the rich agriculture and mining history of Clinton County. View the General Dean Suspension Bridge, the Cholera Cross, and the Coal Miners’ Monument. Tour Breese Historical Park & Garden and an exact replica of a Civil War fort. Built in the late 1800s as a private home, the Clinton County Historical Museum is a must-see, holding many artifacts and history from the area.

You also don’t want to miss a tour of Excel Bottling Co. in Breese, IL, where Ski and other all-natural, pure cane sodas have been produced since the mid-30s.
