A real estate website lists a Morgan County municipality as one of the “10 Safest Cities in Illinois.”

The site says the village of Murrayville is number 10 on the list. Murrayville has a population of around 600 and is part of the Jacksonville Micropolitan Statistical Area.

The website bases its rankings on Crime Index numbers, with all of the top 10 locations having indices in the high 90s or at 100. Griggsville tops the list with a perfect Crime Index score. Pittsfield is number 3.
