Welcome to Thomson, Illinois, where the river meets the town. Situated along the banks of the great Mississippi, where you can pull up a chair, watch the sun go down and dip your toes into the mighty Mississippi river, all in one place.

WOW! If you were at Tipton’s Auction Service on Saturday, February 21, you know what an exciting day it was! The second monthly sesquicentennial event  was a huge success.  The Sesquicentennial Committee would like to thank the appraisers who gave their time, individuals and businesses who donated items and gift certificates for the auction, and everyone who opened their wallets!

Don’t miss the “Tribute to Agriculture” on March 14, featuring the past & future of agriculture. Special displays and demonstrations will include FFA and 4-H exhibits, a photography contest,  and John Deere blacksmithing and agricultural drone demonstrations, just to name a few.

The Donald Ashpole American Legion Post 1025 will be serving breakfast at the Fire Station, so be sure to drop by and eat a hearty meal before heading over to the school.
