Welcome to Mt. Pulaski

The City of Mt. Pulaski is perhaps the definition of small-town Illinois. The vast majority of our 1,500 residents are grateful for that. We love our close-knit community that is always welcoming to visitors and more than willing to embrace those who choose to call our town "home". 

We are a community of friendly, hard-working people with Midwestern values. Our town enjoys its special place in American history and has been bestowed rich farmland. We are neighbors, friends, and family who care about our community and each other.

Located in Central Illinois, the City of Mt. Pulaski is in Logan County. Named after Casimir Pulaski, a Brigadier General in the Revolutionary War, our town is home to one of only two original courthouses where Abraham Lincoln practiced law on the 8th Judicial Circuit. The President's presence in our town is prominent to this day, and his memory is kept alive in our schools, businesses, and community events.

During the prohibition, Mt. Pulaski earned its’ well-known nickname,” Vinegar Hill” and has a vast array of history.  Mt. Pulaski is home to famous people such as Vaughn De Leath (first female to sing on the radio) and John Schlitt (lead singer of Head East and Petra). 

Our square is a center for government, commerce, and civic events. We offer an inviting place to live, work, play and to raise a family. The City of Mt. Pulaski is an easy commute to Bloomington, Springfield, and Decatur. Whether you are planning a visit or looking for a place to settle down, you are welcome here. 

Our central location makes us the perfect choice to live and and an excellent getaway for visitors!
