The City of Marengo is a hidden gem in the Chicago suburbs – between Rockford and Elgin, in McHenry County. A nature lover’s dream, it is surrounded by conservation areas and plenty of nature.
For commuters, the City is located on the I-90 corridor providing easy access to the City of Chicago and Rockford. Chicago’s O’Hare international Airport is only 40 minutes away.
It’s a City with a small population of around 15,000 residents. Home buyers prefer the low cost of living but close proximity to the City of Chicago. Marengo offers peaceful country living and a quaint community, many of the residents have lived in the area all their lives.
The City of Marengo is home to important companies, like UniCarriers Americas ‘s Nissan Forklift, Engineered Polymer Solutions, and Danahar Motion.
Marengo is in an award-winning school district, and boasts a private school as well as two colleges.
Agriculture has always been a part of Marengo’s success. With beautiful and rich farmland, Marengo’s nurseries have supplied Chicagoland with trees, shrubs and flowers. In addition, it also has several limestone quarries in operation.
Living in Marengo
To say that you can truly live out your dreams in Marengo is an understatement!
For both residents and businesses, it’s an ideal location for a spa, rehabilitation center or retreat – a place where busy people can just get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
If a retreat isn’t what you need, then perhaps you’d prefer growing an orchard of apple trees or open a ski resort.
It’s a perfect home for nature lovers, retreats or centers that need to be away from a busy city atmosphere. Although termed a ‘City’, residents can enjoy huge acres of land and wildlife as part of their daily living.
