Harvard, Illinois is a great place to raise a family or grow a business.  This website is your gateway to our community.  Use it to learn more about everything that Harvard has to offer.

Harvard is a city with a strong community spirit and a dynamic semi-rural location  that is within easy reach of larger cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee, Rockford and Madison.  We're a community with a proud heritage and a bright future, with growing businesses, a new elementary school, great parks and recreation programs and other city services.
