Geography

 

 

 


Mount Vernon is located at 38°18′49″N 88°54′29″W.

According to the 2010 census, the city has a total area of 13.15 square miles (34.1 km2), of which 13.07 square miles (33.9 km2) (or 99.39%) is land and 0.08 square miles (0.21 km2) (or 0.61%) is water.

The community is about 80 miles (130 km) east of St. Louis, Missouri.

Mt. Vernon is located on high ground between Casey Creek and the Big Muddy River, which join south of the town in what is now Rend Lake. In pre-settlement times the area around these waterways was a swamp, a heavily forested area that was waist-deep in water during much of the winter and during wet summers. Mt. Vernon was thus often surrounded by water and swamp on three sides.

High ground was located to the north of Mt. Vernon. A ridge ran between the Big Muddy River and Casey Creek north toward what is now Dix.

There are high places both west and east of Mt. Vernon from which one can see the town as a forested point of high ground jutting out into the bottoms. These high places are: from the west, near the Woodlawn interchange off Interstate 64 and from the east, on Old Fairfield Road near Summersville School, with the highest point located on Old Route 15 right before it merges with New Route 15, near Bluford.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arts and culture

 

 

 


Mount Vernon is home to Cedarhurst which is a 90-acre site. Cedarhurst celebrates the arts year-round with visual and performing arts programs for the public. The Cedarhurst Craft Fair is held yearly in early September on the grounds. In addition to its programs on property, the Mitchell Museum is located on the CedarHurst grounds.

The city is host to an event the first Saturday of each month from April through October called Market Days. This is an open-air market held near downtown and is similar to a craft fair or flea market.

There is also the Jefferson County Historical Museum and Village located within incorporated Mount Vernon. The Museum and the Village reflect life in Jefferson County from the mid 19th century to more recent years.

The C.E.Brehm Memorial Public Library, built in 1905, is a source of information to the community and is located downtown.[

Beatles guitarist, George Harrison once bought a guitar from Fenton's Music store in Mt. Vernon in 1963 while he was visiting his sister in nearby Benton, IL. The guitar sold at auction for $657,000 in 2014
