Hermon / Saluda is a remote neighborhood (based on population density) located in Galesburg, Illinois.

Hermon / Saluda real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Hermon / Saluda neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

Hermon / Saluda has a 12.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 66.8% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Hermon / Saluda neighborhood in Galesburg are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 76.5% of the neighborhoods in America. With 28.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 69.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Hermon / Saluda neighborhood, 44.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 22.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (16.5%), and 15.3% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Hermon / Saluda neighborhood in Galesburg, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (23.4%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (18.3%), and residents who report Swedish roots (17.6%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (12.5%), along with some Scottish ancestry residents (5.4%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Hermon / Saluda neighborhood is English, spoken by 96.2% of households. Some people also speak Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region) (3.8%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Hermon / Saluda neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (54.5% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (96.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
