West Shiloh is a suburb of Shiloh City. The area was once a vast section of farmland spanning from Shiloh to Antioch. Development began about 25 years ago. Many of the residents are sons and daughters of the farmers who made West Shiloh the beautiful place it is today---a small, middle class suburb where residents take great pride in the clean parks, streets, and modern commuter rail.
The hills of West Shiloh are the glory of the land. Local mountain bikers, through government grants, have been able to establish a country-known trail system.
At the base of one of the hills is the Central Chora Power Station. This facility provides service to the entire community of West Shiloh.
Here is a shot of some of the town homes. West Shiloh has mostly new construction since it has only been developed in the past quarter century.
The highway and commuter rail cross Elijah's river. There are a few commuter stations in the suburb.
This is the main commuter hub. Mid-week can get pretty busy. Residents commuting into the city can grab a quick bite at the shops next to the parking.
I wanted to make West Shiloh's entry simple and let the pictures speak for themselves. Shiloh City will be posted next week.
On a final note, South Antioch's redevelopment continues... The city has successfully moved many residents to the newly constructed homes north of Antioch (near the farmland separating Antioch and Iconium). The highway near Antioch International Airport was expanded into the southern part of the city, and new rail has been laid to the seaport. GIANT freight footed the bill for the track. Questions surround GIANT's and government officials suspect the generosity as a passive push to containerize the docks. Time will tell. Here is a picture as it stands:
