Home of the Illinois State Freedom Bell
Welcome to the beautiful Northern Illinois community of Mt. Morris, surrounded by corn fields and several state parks only minutes away. We have all the charm a small town should have and plenty of things to do, while also providing a safe place to bring or raise your children. Enjoy a round of golf, a stroll in one of our parks, listen to our summer concerts on the Square on Wednesday and Friday evenings while enjoying the ice cream socials and fund-raising concessions, or take a leisurely walk or jog around town to help stay fit. Join one of our local social clubs or organizations. Mt. Morris has something for everyone!
We are 80 miles west of the Windy City, located in the heart of a triangle between Rockford, Freeport, and Dixon. We are the home to the beautiful White Pines State Park located just a stone's throw away south of town, and in 2015 we will host the 52nd Anniversary of the annual Let Freedom Ring Festival July 2-5. We hope you will be able to visit us and check us out!
