A query from B.J. Mueller, publisher of The Ramsey News-Journal, about the historic village of Perryville, located south of Pittsburg, caused me to pull out my file on this ancient village.
Perryville was platted in 1817 as the first county seat of Bond County. It stood on the bluff west of the Hurricane fork of the Kaskaskia River.
The village has long since turned to soil, but to stand near the millstone and read the signboard erected there by Steve Schildknecht in 1990 gives the visitor a sense of the history of the primitive village.
