Interesting factoid: Lake Glenn Shoals is a 1,250-acre reservoir located in Montgomery County, Illinois. Created in 1976 by damming the Middle Fork of Illinois's Shoal Creek, it was built for recreation, sport fishing, and water supply purposes. The lake is 4 miles long and 0.4 miles wide. The nearest town is Hillsboro, Illinois, south of Springfield, Illinois and northeast of Saint Louis, Missouri.
Lake Glenn Shoals is managed for bass, bluegill, catfish, crappie, and tiger muskie. The lake is managed in two halves, north and south of the Irving Township bridge, with boats able to go as fast as 35 mph south of the bridge but only 5 mph north of the structure. The nearest interstate highway exit is Exit 52 on Interstate 55, near Litchfield.
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency classified Lake Glenn Shoals in April 2006 as an "impaired" lake, due largely to the large quantities of phosphorus, suspended silt, and algae in the lake. These findings could be connected to the significant use of the lake's drainage catchment area by commercial farmers.
The municipality of Hillsboro operates the lake and keeps it stocked with fish. A city permit is required for boaters seeking to use the lake.
All maps include special points of interest laser engraved into the map face and come with a beautiful blue self-adhesive Swarovski Crystal to mark your preferred location on the map (see sample picture).
Each map is a beautiful artistic handcrafted work of art using the finest woods with special attention to every detail. Due to the natural variation in wood grain, each map will vary slightly in finish and color, some come to us all blonde and some has beautiful variances, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind. If you would prefer lighter or darker don't hesitate to ask. (Photo shown is our showroom display. Your map will be very close to this, but wood grain, knots, and final finish color may be slightly different.) Birch is our wood of preference.
Once the map is cut and engraved we hand sand multiple times, assemble and clear coat them for a lustrous wood shine. We believe that this personal attention each and every item receives makes each wooden item a unique work of art.
