Local history documents Abraham Lincoln visiting for lunch and lodging. Imagine the feeling of climbing the original staircase this great American President ascended while visiting in Oregon, and having the opportunity to stay in the same room that was once occupied by Mr. Lincoln.

In addition to the beautiful Rock River, historical maps of the Oregon area show that it was highly prized for its' Oak-Hickory Forests, valued not only for their usefulness, but for their beauty, and quality. Fittingly we have chosen to group our nine guest rooms into three categories that represent the trees in this forest; Oak, Hickory and Maple. We invite you to spend time with us and experience first hand our rich heritage. We look forward to the opportunity to share our "Wonderful Place in the Country" with you.
Guest rooms range from $89.00 to $139.00 and include our breakfast made with the freshest ingredients. Our rooms are decorated to reflect the late 1800's to early 1900's, and feature fully restored antiques. Each room has a private bathroom, flat screen LCD/DVD TV, Wi-Fi internet connection and individual climate control.
As settlers pushed westward in the early 1800's, the small towns of Illinois began to increase in size and number. One of these was William Moore, who in the mid 1840's brought his wife and six children from Pennsylvania to settle in Oregon. His brick Greek Revival home, which is now the front portion of the Inn, consisted of four large rooms with a central staircase. In 1848 Mr. Moore ran a grocery store in the building, and soon after established the first hotel for our city. The 1850 census lists Mr. Moore as an Innkeeper and the first newspaper for Oregon in 1851 advertises "Moore's Hotel" on the front page. It was during the mid 1850's that Abraham Lincoln visited the "Moore Hotel" for lunch and lodging.
The Patchwork Inn is an ideal facility for the business and vacation traveler, religious and corporate retreats, groups and clubs such as scrapbooking, quilting, vintage car road trips, family reunions and wedding guests.
