This is also a small town in North Central Illinois, about 10 miles from the Wisconsin border and 15 from Rockford. It lies on Route 173. My girlfriend lives there, so I call it home.

For a while, the town was threatened by a Gated Community about a mile south of it named Candlewick Lake. The plans were to make Caledonia the Commercial sector for Candlewick. This was only discovered after it was also discovered that Caledonia was never really a town as some paperwork had gotten lost over 100 years before. The paperwork was finished and filed in time.
