6)Kewanee

This small town of 12,500 has roots in the farming and manufacturing industry and borders the famous Breadbasket of America region in northern Illinois. Despite its size, Kewanee has one of the biggest park districts in the state with walking trails, hiking, biking, boating, and fishing. Kewanee really stands out in its cost of living index and housing costs. The cost of living is 19% below the national average, which is mostly due to the shockingly cheap real estate. The median home price is under $60,000, officially the cheapest on the list! The median salary is lower than many of the other cities on this list ($38,000), but an abundance of affordable houses makes up for that. Kewanee is like Quincy in that the crime rate is higher than the national average. However, Kewanee compensates with quality healthcare and respected private and public-school systems, including Black Hawk College Campus.[adrotate group=”3″]
