This week we head southeast for the 10th stop on Q98.5's "Smalltown Throwdown" tour. This week we visit: Kingston, IL!

Small towns are awesome! The smaller the better. We are saluting those small towns that you might just pass by or perhaps, see the town's name on a sign when driving by. But for many people, these town are called home.

Our 10th stop is in Northern DeKalb County. This week, I paid a visit to Kingston, IL.

Here are five things you did not know about Kingston, IL.
