Captured in time, moments away

From the scenic riverfront to the picturesque main street, Momence is captured in time. Discover a vibrant art gallery located in the historic Jensen Drug Store building, a charming locally-owned bakery, and a walkable downtown. You can explore the historic train depot, a one-room schoolhouse and agricultural museum along Momence’s main street. In the center of town, the beautiful Kankakee River surrounds Island Park Walk Bridge. Momence is one of only 40 towns in the state of Illinois designated a Main Street community. Momence’s annual events—Drivin’ the Dixie, Bordertown Hauntings, Gladiolus Festival and Miracle on Washington Street Christmas Festival—invite visitors of all ages to linger a little longer in this charming town.
