The West Urbana neighborhood has a distinct historic feel to it with hundred-year-old trees lining the streets, including a few remaining brick roads. Many of the homes were built in the early 1900s or earlier making West Urbana one of the oldest neighborhoods in the community. While some homes could use updating, most have been lovingly cared for.
The elementary, middle and high schools, the University of Illinois, and downtown Urbana are all within walking distance of the neighborhood, making it easy to understand why the “state streets” of West Urbana are one of the most coveted locations in C-U.
