    Vernon the the northern most village in the county of Marion and was formed as a station for the Illinois Central Railroad. The village was laid out by D. W. MURFIN in 1872. The village received its name from William VERNON, who was the auditor for the Illinois Central Railroad.

    In 1872, the first building was built by T. K. DICKEY for his office. He also built a large hay barn the same year.

    In 1873, the post office was established by D. W. MURFIN, who became the first post-master. MURRAY and HARRIS opened a general mercantile and Edward LAWRENCE built the flouring-mill, which was later operated by DANSBURY and KING.

    In 1874, the first school was opened. It was a one-story frame building. The cost of construction was $400. The teacher received a salary of $50 a month. The School Board of Directors were T. K. DICKEY, J. H. WALKER and James TILLMAN. This building was used until 1891, when the building and lots were sold.

    In 1880, the railroad depot was built. Before that time an old boxcar served as Vernon's Depot. John POOL and William PEDDICORD built a cider-mill. T. K. DICKEY went into the grain business, buying and selling. Ebb ROBINSON and Richard ATKINS both had General Mercantiles. Dr. Samuel MORTON and Dr. J. W. MURFIN both had drug stores along with their medical practices. William GOLDSBOURGH / GOULDSBOURGH and Philip GARDINER were blacksmiths. Frank BINION had a hotel. He was a fine old gentleman who died in 1907 at the age of 107.

    In 1881, the Methodist-Episcopal Church was built. This church disbanded in the latter 1980's. Its edifice was bought by the Canaan Land Pentecostal Church, with pastor Linda KYZAR.

    In 1891 a new two-story frame building was built for the school on a new building site located north of the Methodist-Episcopal Church.

    In 1903, a two-room addition was built onto the Vernon School.

    An axe handle factory was built in Vernon and at one time and was running 24 hours a day.

    In 1906, Vernon had four general stores, two banks, one lumber yard, a brick aned tile factory, two physicians, a hardware store3, two grocery stores, two restaurants, one barber shop, one creamery, and a population of 850 people. The community was at one time thehome of more Civil War veterans than any other ocmmunity of its size.

    On 28 Jun 1910, a child was born who was destined to become a world renowned artist. Herbert Dickens RYMAN, Jr., son of Dr. H. D. and Cora RYMAN. He attended Milliken University in Decatur, Illinois, and then completed his education at the Chicago Art Institute, from which he graduated magna cum laude in 1931. He worked for MGM in the art department, working on some of the great films, including “David Copperfield” (1935), “Tale of Two Cities” (1935) and “The Good Earth” (1937), which won an Oscar. “Anna and the King of Siam,” “The Black Rose” (1950) “The Robe” (1953). In 1939, he began working for Walt DISNEY. He worked on "Pinocchio" (1940), "Dumbo" (1941), and "Victory Through Airpower" (1943). In the summer of 1953, Walt recruited Herb to work on drawings for an amusement park to be called Disneyland - drawings which were largely responsible for the financial backing Walt received for the project. After that fateful weekend in 1953, Herb was kept busy visualizing the finished product... throughout the years, Herbert Ryman's imagination and artistry has touched virtually every aspect of Disneyland - from Main Street to New Orleans Square. Additionally, Herb worked closely with Walt Disney on the 1964 / 65 New York World's Fair. After almost 20 years and completing the concept drawings for Walt Disney World in Florida, Herbert Ryman officially retired from The Walt Disney Company in 1971... but that "retirement" would only last a few years. In 1976, Ryman returned to Disney to work on Tokyo Disneyland and EPCOT Center in Florida, with projects such as "The American Adventure" and "Wonders of China" commanding his skills and attention. His final years with Disney were directed at developing the Main Street-type area of Disneyland Paris and the Indiana Jones™ Adventure at Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. Ryman's private work was always too encompassing to typecast. But he is renowned for his watercolors of the rugged California coast around Carmel and Point Lobos, for his portraits, and for his paintings of the Ringling Brothers Circus and Emmett Kelly. Herbert Dickens Ryman passed away 10 Feb 1989. His legacy lives on with The Ryman Program for Young Artists and today, is celebrated with the release of "A Brush with Disney". You can see some of his artwork at: http://www.abrushwithdisney.com/hollywood1.htm

    According to the Centralia Sentinel, 6 Aug 1910, "Vernon has four general stores, two banks, one lumber yard, one tile and brick factory, two physicians, one hardware store, two grocery stores, two restaurants, one barber shop, two hotels, two black­ smith shops, one creamery, one undertaker and furniture dealer, one church and a population of 350 inhabitants."

    On 30 May 1915, the Civil War Soldier statue in the Veteran's Park was dedicated. Vernon was known to have had the most Civil War Veterans, per capita, than any other town in America. An acre of land was donated by Ebb ROBINSON to the village for the purpose of making a public park. Every Civil War veteran, or a relative of a deceased veteran, planted a tree in the park. They put an eighty foot flag pole, one for each Vet, in the park. (See following for more details and list of Civil War Soldiers.)

    In 1929 the Vernon School burned down. A new building was built on the same site. This was located north of the M. E. Church. It had four class rooms and a gymnasium. First through sixth grades were taught by three teachers.


    In 1991, Vernon was not quite the village it was in 1910, the result of the automobile, but it still has its post office, Mobil gas station, Joyce's Cafe, Morey's Remnant Shop, Flora's Beauty Shop, Burke's Hardwood Lumber Company, and Marvin's Garden of Plunder-Antiques. Vernon still cares for its park. It has a population of 200.

    In 2000, the United States Census shows Vernon with a population of 178 people, 77 households, and 46 families residing in the village. There are 83 housing units. The racial makeup of the village is 98.31% White, 0.56% Native American, and 1.12% from two or more races. 1.69% of the population are Hispanic or Latino of any race.

    In 2010, the population for all those living within the 62892, which includes much rural area, was 317 people. 316 were white and 1 was native American.

    In 2011, Village of Vernon had a population of 129.

    In 2012, Village of Vernon had a population of 128.

Vernon Civil War Veterans Park
Grand Army of the Republic Park


    This park, which is a one-of-a-kind in the United States, was started on land that was donated by Elbridge ROBINSON, recipient of Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor, and by his wife, Martha L. (PEDDICORD) ROBINSON. The land was given to the G.A.R. James T. JONES Post of Vernon.

    On 21st of November, 1906, a resolution was passed by the Women's Relief Corps #1884, to erect a monument in the G.A.R. Park.

    On 30 May 1915, the life-size statue of a Civil War soldier was formally dedicated in the park. The monument is 18 feet, 4 inches high, including two bases and topped by the statue of a life-sized solder, equipped with gun and accouterments standing at "parade rest". The inscription on the shaft shows to those of the present and of the future how their ancestor's tree may be located. Each tree is numbered and the names and numbers are recorded in the archives of the county.

    On 9 October 1915, the record of the trees, soldiers, their rank, company and regiment were recorded in the Marion County Court House by Recorder John M. SCHULTZ.

    In the late 30's or early 40's, the park was later transferred to the Village of Vernon. From "Footprints In Marion County" Vol. 2 No. 1, page 7 has, "In accepting the deed to the park the citizens of Vernon pledged themselves and their successors to the faithful care and protection of the park and the continuation of the custom (of the old soldiers, while living) of flying the U.S. Flag from the flag pole on each national holiday."

    "The purpose of the statue is to honor the Civil War Veterans and to teach the lessons of patriotism to future generations."
