Meet at Caterpillar Visitors Center and board our air-conditioned vehicle for a tour. Peoria once featured a riverfront lined with breweries and distilleries, and thus came to be known as the Whiskey Capital of the World. From 1850 to Prohibition, the volume of whiskey distilled, aged, and bottled in Peoria led to great fortunes being made and to the birth of equally prosperous secondary industries. Discover why Peoria was the perfect place for all of these industries to be born. For Wheelchair reservations please call the office at 674-1921
