One comment on “Chatham”

Chatham, Illinois, is located a few miles south of Springfield. It is removed from the City of Springfield’s utility system, so expect more frequent blackouts during rainstorms. Despite this and other shortcomings, Chatham is often looked to as a more desirable place than Springfield, due to its lower crime rate and excellent school system.
