History of Shiloh
In 1807, the community of Shiloh was once known as “Three Springs” because there were three abundant springs at the foot of a hill where church camp meetings were held. This assembly inspired construction of the log Shiloh Meeting House which is where the Shiloh and Shiloh Valley names originated. Shiloh was officially organized into a Village in 1905.
Miners and farmers settled the area. Most were immigrants who valued education. For that reason Shiloh had the first one room schoolhouse and the first library in St. Clair County.
