I love everything about Shiloh. It's so close to the highway, stores, and restaurants. Everyone is so kind and welcoming. The schools are absolutely amazing and are close.

A lovely small town that is very close to a variety of other small towns such as Bellville, O'Fallon, and Collinsville. You are only a thirty-minute drive from St. Louis, so it is great if you work in St. Louis and want a cheaper living circumstance.
Shiloh is smaller town in southern Illinois. It is somewhat quick with polite members. It’s constantly growing, but still holds on to its history with beautiful historical houses still standing.
