HistoryEdit

Lima was platted in 1833,[2] the year that the first store was established in the village, by Dr. Joseph Orr.[3] Orr named the village Lima after Lima, Peru, on the suggestion of a Peruvian friend.[3] In 1839 a large number of Latter-day Saints settled at this location. An LDS stake was organized here in 1840 and a conference here in 1841 had more than 400 Latter-day Saints presence. The Latter-day Saints left in 1845 due to mob violence.

As of 1955, Lima was the principal community of Lima Township, Illinois.[3]
