Lost Towns of Illinois - Sylvan, Illinois.

Sylvan was a former settlement in Cass County, Illinois, located two and one-half miles west-southwest of Newmansville. 


A few old farmhouses still stand. The town was populated during the mid-19th century mostly by Irish immigrants. There is one cemetery there.
