Category:Robert Allerton Park

English: Robert Allerton Park is a park, nature center, and conference center in Willow Branch Township, Piatt County, Illinois, about 4.2 miles (6.8 km) south-southwest of Monticello, Illinois. It was the country estate of Robert Allerton, known as The Farms, until 1942 when he donated it to the University of Illinois, which still owns and operates the park, 23 miles (37 km) south-southwest of the Urbana-Champaign campus. The Sangamon River runs through the park. Much of the park is on the National Register of Historic Places as Robert Allerton Estate, and most of the rest is a National Natural Landmark named the Allerton Natural Area.
