Overview of Morris

The small city of Morris, Ill., is located about 60 miles from downtown Chicago. Situated directly outside of the suburban Fringe, Morris is a charming Illinois town that is home to about 13,000 people. Morris boasts a historic downtown, a charming vibe and a close-knit community that all contribute to its small-town feel. However, word is spreading about Morris' unique combination of suburban amenities and rural charm. The city's population grew by about 14 percent between 2000 and 2010, according to City-Data. Those searching for Morris apartments for rent will be delighted to discover this quaint Midwestern exurb.

Living in Morris, IL

Morris' first permanent settlement was built in 1834, at the intersection of what would become Jefferson and Nettle streets. The local population grew, and the Village of Morris was soon incorporated. The region thrived as an agricultural region as Chicago's population blossomed, and post-war suburbanization led to an ever-thinning distance between Morris and Chicagoland.

Today, Morris indeed plays a role in Chicagoland's economy. Considered an exurb, Morris is home to a few commuters who have sought a rural way of life on the metropolitan fringe. However, the town itself is a major employer in the region, as it is home to the Dresden Nuclear Power Generating Station. This major energy source is the nation's first full-scale, privately financed nuclear power plant and provides a large portion of Chicagoland's energy needs. Two other nuclear power plants are located within 15 miles of Morris: the LaSalle County Generating Station and the Braidwood Generating Station. 

Morris Attractions and Special Events

Morris' rural landscape provides an excellent backdrop for many recreational activities. Those searching for apartments in Morris will want to check out Gebhard Woods State Park, where they can hike, camp, canoe, picnic and birdwatch with ease. Residents and visitors also frequent the Illinois and Michigan Canal, which marks the first complete water route from the east coast to the Gulf of Mexico.
