Get ready to turn back time as you venture into the Village of Elsah during the beautiful spring season. Nestled in a valley along the Mississippi River bluffs, Elsah peeks out to those driving along the byway, beckoning a close look at this New England-like village with its stone cottages and tidy gardens. Better known as “the town time forgot,” Elsah is favorite spot for photographers looking for the perfect picture and visitors looking for a glimpse of early Americana. Plan on taking a peek at couple of the historic buildings in the village. The last stop will be a trip to Principia College, located high upon the bluffs, the only Christian Scientist college in the world.
The campus is an architectural masterpiece and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Elsah was also the first town in the nation to be listed on the National Historic Register in its entirety. For more information, please call (800) 258-6645.
