About Carrier Mills

Carrier Mills, Illinois

 

 

 

 

Carrier Mills, formerly Carriers Mills and Morrilsville, also known as Catskin, is a village in Saline CountyIllinois,United States. The population was 1,655 at the 2010 census. Carrier Mills was named after George Washington Carrier and his saw and grist mill, and was one of the early Cairo and Vincennes Railroad boomtowns. Carrier Mills has lost 44% of its population since the 1920 census high of 3,000. The village has a large African Americanpopulation at 13%, compared to neighboring communities in the region, due to migration from the nearby community of Lakeview

History

 

 

 

 

 

 


Carrier Mills has been nicknamed "Catskin" due to both an abundance of stray cats in town, and a late-19th century story of the first local merchandise and liquor store owner, Wes Cole, who was tricked by local kids into thinking a skinned cat hide was a mink stole in trade for a jug of whiskey. To this day Carrier Mills is host to the annual Catskin Days town fair and parade. The township's school mascot is the Wildcat.

Carrier Mills is included in the Illinois-Indiana-Kentucky Tri-State Area and is the third largest community in theHarrisburg Micropolitan Statistical Area outside of Eldorado and Harrisburg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Geography

 

 

 

 

 

 


Carrier Mills is located at 37°41′13″N 88°37′45″W (37.686923, -88.629149).

According to the 2010 census, the village has a total area of 1.22 square miles (3.2 km2), of which 1.21 square miles (3.1 km2) (or 99.18%) is land and 0.01 square miles (0.026 km2) (or 0.82%) is water.

Carrier Mills sits upon a heavily undermined hillside that overlooks a shallow flatland to the south, where its sister community of Lakeview was built in a region of swampy land drained by the South Fork of the Saline River. In the distance, two ridges of the Shawnee Hills can be seen from town in a distinct blue haze.

The village is split into two distinct sections with Washington Street being the only main east-west oriented avenue connecting them. In between the two sections is the elevated New York Central Railroad bed, now the Tunnel Hill State Trail, on a large swath of grass, and the now defunct streetcar bypass on Carline Street, splitting the village in a southwest to northeast angle. Downtown is located in the southwest corner, the largest section of the village to the northwest, and East End to the southeast, US Route 45 borders the southern edge, giving Carrier Mills its distinctive 'L' shape.[
