Let me be the first to welcome you to the Village of Ladd - "a great place to call home".
Incorporated in 1890, The Village of Ladd, taking its name from George D. Ladd, of Peru, Illinois, was originally a construction camp settled in 1888 by workers from railroad companies that were extending track through this area to serve a grain elevator and coal mine.
Today, the Village is home to 1,295 citizens, and is known for its fried chicken and prospering group of entrepreneurial businesses.
Whether Ladd is home to your family or to your business, our family of elected and appointed village officials and employees are poised to assure you that the needs of the people of our community are met around the clock.
We are proud of our history and we fondly remember our heritage. But just as important, we celebrate our prosperity and look forward to our exciting future!
