Where there's always something going on!
Welcome to Uptown!
Uptown Collinsville exemplifies the traditional sense of community and history that is the heart and soul of today's Collinsville. Home to churches, public and parochial schools, library, history museum, government, theater, business and historic homes, this area today looks and feels much like it did at the turn of the 19th century and first half of the 20th century.
For many decades downtown was the prosperous home to banks, mercantiles, clothing stores, newspapers, hotels and other traditional "Main Street" businesses. Today its streetscape has been upgraded to support the many businesses and institutions that remain and to attract new businesses. Uptown is also the scene of several large community-wide festivals each year, including the Italian Fest, Fall Festival and Christmas in Collinsville. The National Road runs through the center of Collinsville and is designated a National Scenic Byway.
