Today, the Biggsville community serves as home to West Central School #235. This village, with a population of 350, is situated along U.S. 34, midway between Monmouth, Illinois and Burlington, Iowa. It was settled in 1854 and named for grain mill operator John Biggs, who is buried in nearby Cumberland Cemetery, northwest of town.
Biggsville was once home to Hend-Co Hills Country Club which is where 2004 British Open Champion Todd Hamilton started playing the game of golf.
A popular stop on the annual Henderson County Heritage Trail, Biggsville provides a diverse offering of activities during this event, always held on the final full weekend each September. Church dinners, an open house at the county library facility, and a parade are all regularly scheduled events. The town's old-time jail stands near the wooden bridge spanning the CB&Q Railroad. The community is served by the United Presbyterian and United Methodist Churches. With the re-opening of the Lynn Hotel, overnight lodging is now available.
