Morocco was founded in 1851 and believed to be named after a traveler's red Moroccan boots. Morocco is located just west of the intersection of US 41 and Indiana 114. We are located about 70 miles from Chicago and 115 miles from Indianapolis. Purdue University is 50 miles south and Indiana University Northwest is 50 miles to the north. All of these amenities are easily accessed by either Interstate 65 or US 41.
