History

The town of Utica had previously been established on the banks of the Illinois River during the 1830s, but flooding and the construction of the Illinois and Michigan Canal a few miles north encouraged redevelopment of the village there as North Utica.

Utica was once the home to Hall of Fame baseball player Joseph Atkins.
