Illinois Maple Syrup History

Illinois is known for Corn, Prairies and Maple Syrup. Illinois is one of seventeen states in the Union that produces the liquid Amber and is one of the furthest western states to do so. However, there are multiple Sugar Houses in operation. One Sugar House in particular prides itself in using the original Webster dictionaries spelling of syrup- Sirup.
