Burtonview is an Unincorporated community in Logan County, along Illinois Route 10 in Central Illinois. The unincorporated community lies between Lincoln and New Holland, Illinois on Route 10.

Burton View is a grain station which was located on the Champaign, Lincoln & Eastern, now the Champaign and Havana branch of the Illinois Central railroad, soon after the completion of that railroad through Sheridan township. The place was first known as Burton and was changed to Burton View in 1873, when a post office was established. Pegram & Brother erected an elevator at this point, which was destroyed by fire in 1900. The Burton View Grain Company, a farmers' co-operative elevator, was organized in 1909.
