Welcome To Granite City, Illinois.
Hello and welcome to the best well-kept secret in all of Southern Illinois, my hometown, Granite City
Even with all of these great qualities, however, our finest gem is the quality of our citizens who, according to the United Way, are among the most giving people in the nation.
Truly, my hometown is a hidden treasure chest of potential and opportunities and I encourage you to become a part of the excitement. Whether you seek excellent opportunities for education, recreation, religion, business or culture, we have it all. Also, being located just six miles from St. Louis with easy access to major highways and interstates, we are just a river's width away from all of the professional sports, shopping, recreational and cultural amenities that this great American city has to offer.
In short, if a high quality of life is what you seek, then Granite City is the place for you and your family. But, with as much promise as my hometown has, I cannot guarantee that it will remain a secret for long.
