Lost Towns of Illinois - Horace, Illinois.

Horace has suffered the ultimate indignity: its name is misspelled on Illinois maps as "Harris." It appears to have been a small farming hamlet.

Horace was located in Edgar County, about one mile west of Illinois Route 1 and five miles north of Paris, Illinois. The Edgar County Airport is where the location of Horace, Illinois, was located.

The major remnant is an old brick mercantile building, although there are some other abandoned buildings in the area.
