Our Community

Considering a move to this area?

Mount Vernon and Lisbon are well-known for their shopping and restaurants, festivals and events and are worth a visit. But if it’s time to relocate, there is additional information on area services to make your transition a little easier.

From state-of-the-art schools to walkable neighborhoods and a shared public/college library, the benefits of living in Mount Vernon and Lisbon are many.

Chicago, Minneapolis and St. Louis are all within an afternoon’s drive while the Eastern Iowa Airport is 20 minutes away. The average commute to jobs in Iowa City or Cedar Rapids, is all of 18.8 minutes.

It takes a village and we would love for you to become part of ours!
