WESTVILLE -- People come from all around Central Illinois to enjoy this popular spot in Our Town. It's called the Sportsman's Club. If you like being outside, you can find your own adventure. The club itself is outside the main part of the village.

It was started in the 1940's as a place for Boy Scouts, and in the 50's, community members worked together to create the lake inside it. The people who come here to camp, fish and picnic have changed through the years.

People also come to shoot pistols on the range. There's an area for trap shooting as well. Members are allowed to come to the club anytime they want to relax and enjoy nature.
