Perfect for visual artists, designers, and writers who would like affordable, quiet, and comfortable space to work in. ***Welcome to the historic Old Sandstone in downtown Mt. Morris. This 100-year-old building traces its illustrious past to the Rock River Seminary and Mount Morris College (1839-1932). Walk the halls where Civil War generals, a cabinet member, an ambassador, governors, state Supreme Court justices, congressmen … used to live and study. Today you’ll be sharing this stately building with an art gallery on the first floor, a music studio on the third floor, and an Internet bookstore. ***150 USD/month rent plus $150 security deposit. Lease is on a month-to-month basis. ***Nestled in the gently rolling hills of northwestern Illinois, the tranquil Village of Mount Morris is 90 minutes from downtown Chicago and Madison, 50 minutes to the Mississippi, and only 37 minutes from Rockford. The Old Sandstone is at the heart of the former college campus and the village square where you can conveniently walk or bike to bars, restaurants, café, medical clinic, and a full grocery store. Our village is a small, safe, and friendly community. ***Summer in Mount Morris means many fun activities that bring residents and visitors together: two free evening concerts a week, PorchFest, US National Straw Sculpting, and multiple fine arts shows. ***Visitors are spoilt with choices for outdoor recreation: the Rock River, three state parks, city parks, golf courses, a prairie nature reserve with bisons, camp grounds, and forest preserves—all within 15-mile radius. And the mighty Mississippi River is only 41 miles away.
