World's Largest Catsup Bottle
800 South Morrison Ave.
Collinsville, IL 62234
Collinsville is home to the largest catsup bottle in America. Dubbed as "roadside architecture as its best," the bottle is located on Illinois 159 (south Morrison) at the south edge of the city.
The now-empty steel water tank was constructed in 1949 and restored in 1995. In August 2002, it was named to the National Registar of Historic Places. In 2010 the bottle was given another honor by being mentioned in the Twilight saga movie "Eclipse."

Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site
30 Ramey St. Collinsville, IL 62234
A United Nations World Heritage Site since 1982, Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site is the largest archaeological site in America and is the home of Monks Mound, the largest prehistoric earthen construction in the New World.
The 100-ft-tall, four-tiered platform of Monks Mound was built in stages over a period of 300 years. Its base covers more than 14 acres and contains about 22 million cubic feet of earth. At one time, the Indians' principle ruler lived, conducted ceremonies and governed the city below from atop the massive mound. Many one-of-a kind jewelry items, as well as educational books, tapes, games, souvenir items and replicas of objects found during archeological digs, are featured in the gift shop.
