The key to small town charm is its people. With a Village population of 9,434 and surrounding area estimate of 15,000, we have retained our small town charm with plenty of opportunities that you would expect in a larger community. Our residents play an active role in our community involving themselves in a wide variety of church, civic, and school organizations. We are proud of the Mahomet-Seymour school system which is a driving factor for many families to locate in our community with its excellent academic reputation and highly competitive and acclaimed sports, dance, drama, band and music programs.

We are the home to a great Library and two Forest Preserves which includes the Lake of the Woods Golf Course. The Village’s Parks and Recreation Department offers area leading programs for soccer, basketball, t-ball, baseball, softball, and flag football. With over 100 acres of open space spread across ten park locations, we have a variety of outdoor activities for all ages to enjoy. We know you will come back! Many communities talk about “quality of life”. We invite you to experience it.
