This highpoint was just blocks from my intended route, so I picked it up, even though I didn't have time to get the other area, which is on other side of the county.

From the Bond County Courthouse in Greenville, on IL 127/40, turn north on 3rd Street. Follow 3rd Street 1 block to Oak, turn right, then left on Beaumont. At the corner of First and Beaumont, on the north side is a driveway, with a sign marked "Bass-Mollett House, Student Housing, Greenville College". Turn into driveway, which circles house, and has parking for the residents. The house sits on the high ground. I circled the house to make sure I got the highest ground. It appears to be in the front. If you have driven past a water tower, you went just beyond the house.
