"St. Elmo was founded in 1871 and is located between Vandalia and Effingham on Interstate 70.  St. Elmo has the potential for expansion, while keeping the small town feel.  St. Elmo has blossomed into a history rich community.  The downtown area has many historic features.  St. Elmo offers something for everyone, fishing in several local lakes, roaming the antiques malls, premier golf course, top of the line parks, library, boy scouts, churches, specialty shops, restaurants, farmers markets, auction center, Veterans Memorial, festivals and celebrations, and many locally owned businesses.  The St. Elmo community prides ourselves on being a progressive community."
