Schuyler County Adds Tourist Attraction

Rushville, IL – Schuyler County economic developers are working with a privately-owned off-road track to make it one of the county's tourist attractions. Owner Gary Williams says he was looking for county endorsement on a state grant application when he found how well his "Brushy Ridge" ATV site fitted the county's goal. Williams says he'll be applying for DNR grants to expand camping facilities on his almost 300-acre site. To date, he's had riders from Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and the Chicago area.
