The “Old Farm” stood for years near the intersection of Mattis and Kirby in Champaign and people wondered if the O’Conner place would leave family hands and be developed. To the south Broadmoor developed as did other very nice southwest neighborhoods. Now there are always very desirable southwest Champaign homes for sale in this area.
Well the time came and now Old Farm Shops thrives on that corner and nearby is the Old Farm development. (As an aside- one of my favorite new shops at Old Farm is the Cheese and Crackers– if you really like good cheese and gourmet foods, try it!)
Close by to this area is the Carle complex on south Mattis and of course it is an easy jaunt to the University of Illinois.
