Welcome to South Elgin, a growing, vibrant community on the banks of the Fox River. Located between Elgin and Saint Charles in Kane County, South Elgin is a town brimming with spirit and hometown pride. South Elgin gracefully bridges the gap between small town charm and suburban progress. The village successfully embraces both, creating a true gem among suburban communities. South Elgin boasts a beautiful riverside setting, along with a thriving business community, active organizations, involved citizens, and a host of nearby shopping, entertainment and recreational opportunities.

Visitors and residents alike all find something to love about this town. Anything that cannot be found right in town is just a short trip away. South Elgin has long benefited from a close proximity to major transportation corridors. Residents routinely travel to Chicago for work or recreation and gladly return to their hometown at the end of the day. Of course, with so much to do around town, who needs to look any further?
