Our Village was established in 1876 under a government land grant. Mazon’s early history was very important for the area’s growth with the Chicago-Bloomington Trail. Travelers would stay at the Halfway House prior to the development of the Illinois Michigan Canal. Today, Mazon has a population of 1,100 people. The Village has several small subdivisions to attract additional growth.
