DescriptionHorseradishes, log cabins and coal all are a part of Collinsville's heritage, which began when the town's first inhabitant built a log cabin overlooking the Mississippi basin in 1810. The city's name changed from Downing Station to Collinsville in 1825, and it soon became a bustling coal town. Today the area around Collinsville produces most of the world's supply of horseradishes.
