When the first steamboat came to Peru in 1831, the area was hopeful that it would be the western terminal for the Illinois & Michigan Canal, but its twin city LaSalle got that honor instead. Peru still became a busy steamboat port at the head of the Illinois River.

The United Clock Company started in Peru, but went bankrupt shortly after opening. Once it was reorganized and reopened, it grew into a national company and produced over 1 million alarm clocks every year. The company, which trademarked as Westclox, became known for its model on workers' benefits and it was one of the early companies to pay life insurance.

Today, Peru, Illinois, has a number of business districts and the largest employer in the city is the Peru Mall followed by the Illinois Valley Community Hospital. There are also three very old companies, like American Nickeloid, which was founded in 1898 and the W.H. Maze Co, which deals lumber and nails and started in 1848.

When is a Good Time to Visit to Peru, Illinois?

Peru, Illinois, has varied temperatures and prices throughout the year and travelers often enjoy the dry season the best. That season lies between May and October. The days are sunny and warm and the nights don't drop too low temperature-wise. There also isn't a lot of rain and no snow during that timeframe.

While spring, summer, and early fall are the best weather times to visit the area, it's also the most expensive time to stay in Peru, Illinois, because it is when most travelers come. To avoid both the crowds and the higher prices, travelers might be better off coming to the region during the later fall months or early in the spring before things get busier.

For those who appreciate snow, staying in the area during the winter might be an ideal time to relax and remain inside. Peru sees quite a bit of snow over an average winter and the cold temperatures are prevalent as well. Travelers can save a lot on airfare and accommodations during that time.
