One of Chatham's major attractions is the beautiful funeral home that used to be the bowling alley. This landmark underscores how Chatham is an up-an-comer in the mortuary business.
Impressed Visitor to Central Illinois: Are you from Chatham? It looks like you have shit on your hands.
Person with shit on his hands sighs: Thanks for the compliment. No, I was just finished diapering my son.
Impressed Visitor: Holy cow! That isn't a funeral home that used to be a bowling alley, is it? Why can't my town have one of those?
Chatham Resident: Well, when your residents stop wanting to be entertained & start wanting to die, you'll get your ex-bowling alley funeral home too.
Impressed Visitor: I guess New York doesn't have everything.

Where the name for the American town of the same name came from.
Gets way too much abuse from people that have never even visited, because of the rise in popularity of the term 'Chav', which originated there (probably).
There are Chavs there (the same as there are in many towns), but is not solely occupied by Chavs, as many would have you believe. In fact, the town's alternative population is just as strong.
Home of the alternative pub 'Tap'n'Tin', which was where the Libertine's first album cover was shot.
