Sixth Judicial Circuit


Champaign | DeWitt | Douglas | Macon | Moultrie | Piatt | 6th Circuit Court Judges |

Champaign County FYI

Senator John Vance named "Champaign" after his former home county in Ohio, the county-seat of which is also Urbana.

Champaign was founded in 1855, when the Illinois Central Railroad laid its track two miles west of downtown Urbana. Originally called "West Urbana," it was renamed Champaign when it acquired a city charter in 1860.
