Collinsville, Illinois started with just one permanent home, built in 1810. That home was built by John Cook of Shepherdstown, Virginia. Cook’s cabin sat at what is now the corner of Church and Orient Streets in the modern day city of Collinsville, Illinois.
Seven years after John Cook built his house, three brothers came from the East to make this place a home. The Collins brothers bought the claim and cabin of John Cook, and then sent word to their parents and sisters, who would later join them.
The Collins family opened several businesses, including a distillery store, blacksmith, sawmill, carpenter, wagon shop and ox-grist mill. By 1837, they had platted a village. They didn’t name it Collinsville, Illinois; in fact at first they called the place Unionville, but later they learned that a town by that name already existed in Illinois. A vote of the citizens was taken and the name Collinsville was chosen. The village would adopt a charter and elect trustees by 1850. By 1872, sixty-two years after the first home was built, they had a city.
Collinsville, Illinois incorporated and chose the aldermanic form of government (like a council of elders), electing John Becker as the first mayor.
