About Harristown

Welcome to the Village of Harristown! 

The Village of Harristown is centrally located in Illinois; with direct access to Interstate 72 and U.S. highways 36, 48, & 51.

Harristown is a quiet suburban community. Our village is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear.  We take pride in maintaining a welcoming community, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business. 

Harristown is a great place to settle down and raise a family. With a population of around 1300, our community is small enough that you know your neighbors, but large enough to offer many services and businesses that may not be available in smaller towns. Our residents play an active role in our community involving themselves in a wide variety of church, civic, and school organizations. We are proud of the Sangamon Valley school system which is a driving factor for many families to locate in our community with its excellent academic reputation and extracurricular programs.

Once you visit, we know you will come back!
