Firstly, Carbondale is the state’s 20th-most-populated city outside the Chicago Metropolitan Area. In addition, the city is the most populous in Southern Illinois outside the St. Louis Metro-East region.

It started in August 1853 when Daniel Harmon Brush, John Asgill Conner, and Dr. William Richart bought a 360-acre parcel of land between two proposed railroad station sites (Makanda and De Soto) and two county seats (Murphysboro and Marion).

Brush named Carbondale for the large deposit of coal in the area. The first train through Carbondale arrived on Independence Day 1854, traveling north on the main line from Cairo, Illinois.

Faith has a following in Carbondale in churches and other houses of god. A variety of Christian, Universalist fellowship, mosques, a Jewish congregation, a Sufi community, and two Buddhist organizations – the Shawnee Dharma Group and the Sunyata Center all call Carbondale home.


At Childers Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on being committed to helping you obtain the smile that you have always dreamed of – beautiful and healthy. Our strong commitment to each patient is the driving beat that our practice follows. We’ll always make sure you receive treatment that is worth smiling about!
