Heartland Highways has been a WEIU-TV production since 2002. Over the years, we've introduced viewers to hundreds of unique people and interesting places in Illinois, Indiana and Missouri.

We're currently re-airing episodes of our 12th season of Heartland Highways, and you can also check out every season of the show on our YouTube channel. Also, we'd love for you to share your story ideas with us!


Season 12 Re-Airings

Episode 1212 - Aug. 29, 2014

Heartland Highways has been a lot of places and in this episode we might’ve met our match. Photographer Bruce Wicks has taken pictures in over 1,000 area towns and often goes back several times to catalog how small-town America and its landscape changes. We also visit the University of Illinois Pollinatarium. Don’t know what that is? The Pollinatarium is a one-of-a-kind place dedicated to educating people about bees. Our final story has us meeting up with a group that collects what they call breweriana; or anything related to beer.


Episode 1213 - Sept. 5, 2014

Season 12 wraps up with a show about the small town of Pontiac, Illinois. Situated on Route 66, the city is named after a Native American Chief and not the automobile, but it still plays home to the Pontiac-Oakland Automobile Museum. The city is also home to several Walldog murals and the only Walldog Mural Museum. Other points of interest include art cars, a Route 66 Museum, Livingston County War Museum and more.
