Carmi has always had a Midwestern mentality.
Its people believed in hard work, family, religion and
community. That still makes it a vital place to raise a
family or set up a business.
Southern Illinois has long been an agricultural and oil
and gas dominated economy, and now throw in the coal industry
and Carmi has several natural resource reserves to pull
from. In educating its youth, the Carmi-White County Unit
5 School System has proven itself a leader in education
services. Southeastern Illinois College now maintains a
Carmi campus that is ever expanding to meeting growing
education needs. For more information about Carmi, please
