ABOUT US

About Us

HISTORY

OVER A HUNDRED YEARS ON THE ILLINOIS RIVER

The Illinois Valley Yacht and Canoe Club was founded in 1907 from several earlier clubs: the Peoria Boat Club (1877); the Peoria Canoe Club (1885); and the Peoria Yacht Club (1895).

 

Club members initially met at a downtown hotel, then moved to a houseboat, and by the end of the first year, built a clubhouse on pilings, about 700 feet downstream from the present location. In 1927, the club reorganized and moved its clubhouse to its current location at Mile Marker 167.9.

Many additions and improvements have been made over the years; we now boast an additional seawall, a protected harbor with a permanent breakwater, an additional deck, steel docks, our family-friendly swimming pools, a restaurant and lounge, a Tiki Bar by the pool and the lovely expanded and renovated club house with its panoramic views.
