About Morton Grove
Morton Grove sounds like a place where you would find plenty of wide-open spaces. It does not disappoint, with 20 percent of the village’s land set aside for open space and recreation.
The residents of Morton Grove enjoy abundant award-winning public parks and recreation, including a popular historic bike trail, the Cook County Forest Preserve and open space along the North Branch of the Chicago River.
Tree-lined streets, a tight-knit community, neighborhood shops and local eateries add to the village’s charm. Morton Grove offers a variety of housing choices -- from ranch homes to Chicago-style bungalows.
Students are served by several excellent school districts. High schoolers attend Niles West High School or Niles North High School located in neighboring Skokie; or Main East High School in Park Ridge.
Founded in 1895, the Village named after former U.S. Vice President Levi Parsons Morton has a vibrant business community.
Community pride is evident when the community comes together each summer to celebrate Morton Grove Days, a popular festival with carnival rides, live entertainment and a Fourth of July parade.
Along with the wide-open spaces, Morton Grove shines when it comes to convenience. The village offers direct access to downtown Chicago with its own Metra station and easy access to the Edens Expressway.
