History of Budd, Illinois

Budd is a post office and station on the Indiana, Illinois & Iowa railroad, in the extreme northern part of the county. It has the Adams Express and Western Union Telegraph facilities. The station is ten miles west of Dwight and fifteen miles north of Pontiac. A rich farming region surrounds the station and considerable grain and stock are shipped. (1878)

Today Budd has a grain elevator and approximately four families living in the near vicinity. 

St. Bernard Catholic Church is located nearby on the corner of Budd Road and Rt. 17. It is now privately owned by Annette & Kevin Liptak. You can see why I love Livingston County past and present. Annette
