Morton Grove is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 23,270, for a growth rate of 3.6% since 2000. The village is named after former United States Vice President Levi Parsons Morton, who was the driving force behind allowing the old Miller’s Mill road (now Lincoln Avenue) to pass through the upstart neighborhood, and provide goods to trade and sell.
Here, you’ll find a wide range of shopping and dining options, award-winning schools and parks, and miles upon miles of Cook County Forest Preserve trails and open space nestled among the North Branch of the Chicago River. This close-knit, diverse community maintains all the ease of life in a small town while supporting a strong commercial and industrial base.
Proximity to Chicago, local expressways, commuter trains and the airport fuel this vibrant Village’s growth, while the charm of its tree-lined streets, neighborhood shops and eateries, and its numerous community-wide events make residents proud to call Morton Grove home. Come see for yourself just what this incredibly close, amazingly open place has to offer.
