Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Cardiff is a ghost town in Livingston County, Illinois, United States. Founded as a coal mining town in 1899, it boomed in its first few years. Rapid growth ceased after accidents in the mines in 1903, and the closure of the mines in 1912 soon led to the community's demise. It is located in Round Grove Township, between the villages of Campus and Reddick.
