About Us

Ottawas Own started in 2004 as a business directory. We are still the number one local business directory in the area and now we are also an online news portal located in beautiful Ottawa Il. We are not necessarily geared strictly for Ottawa, IL. It just so happens that we live here and are proud of our community and state. We use RSS technology to bring news from numerous sources to our website. All of our content belongs to the original author. We are growing fast and will be adding new features weekly. Our local news and other information comes from Illinois News Network and Topix RSS feeds.
