Illinois is a midwestern state bordering Indiana in the east and the Mississippi River in the west. Nicknamed “the Prairie State,” it’s marked by farmland, forests, rolling hills and wetlands. On Lake Michigan in its northeast is Chicago, one of the largest cities in the U.S. It’s famous for its skyscrapers, such as sleek, 1,451-ft. Willis Tower and the neo-Gothic Tribune Tower.
The City of Morrison, Illinois is located in the northwestern part of the state. We are a city of rich heritage and charm whose citizens are welcoming to all. The residents of Morrison have a long history of voluntarism to the community and their neighbors. We are extremely proud of our schools that have long been recognized as one of the best small school systems in the state. Our accomplishments in academics, athletics and the fine arts are on a par with far larger districts. This is due not only to our modern facilities, dedicated teachers and staff, but also to the involvement of interested parents. In addition to our schools, we have a very modern library and community room.
As you travel around Morrison, you will notice a main street that has many historic two and three-story structures that house stores, shops and businesses, eager to serve you. Along Route 30 and on several side streets, you will observe historic homes with beautiful and diverse architecture. Scattered throughout the Morrison area, you will find a dozen or more churches of many different denominations waiting to welcome you.
