A small town with smart city growth opportunities
Grayville’s population of 1550 residents is not Chicago, but we’re growing with a smart growth plan. While protecting our natural beauty, we have mixed-use land available for business, agricultural, and residential expansion with incentives to make it happen.
Our Interstate 64 Plaza development is the perfect location for restaurants, hotels, and recreational attractions for the thousands of vehicles traveling Interstate 64 daily. Whether you’re camping or glamping, a KOA campground on the Plaza offers a safe place to pitch a tent or to park an RV. If camping isn’t your sleeping bag, there are several hotels and Bed and Breakfast accommodations in the area.
