Welcome to Morton, Illinois, the Pumpkin Capital of the World! Morton is an affluent, growing community of 17,000 that sits at the crossroads of Interstate 74 and Interstate 155 on the outskirts of Peoria in Central Illinois. Home to a wide variety of employers including Caterpillar, Pepsi, and Nestle, the community has seen steady growth in residential, industrial, and retail development over the past decade. By offering the lowest property tax and sales tax rates in the region, Morton has become a destination for both employers and residents looking for a central location with access to both the Peoria and Bloomington markets.
