The Town of Cicero surrounds the upper portion of Morse Reservoir. The man-made lake covers 1,500 acres with a shoreline of over 32 miles. Considering the fact that over 600 homes are on the water, have water views or access, it is easy to understand why Cicero is Hamilton County’s Recreational and Resort Community.
Residents find the town centrally located. Cicero is 35 minutes from Indianapolis, 30 minutes to Kokomo and 20 minutes to Anderson. While most of our residents work in these larger employment centers, they find coming home to Cicero’s less hurried atmosphere a pleasant way to end the workday and to raise a family.
Cicero is a blend of homes within the original town and the newer suburban homes in the developing areas surrounding Morse Reservoir and south on Stringtown Road. These new homes offer the amenities of suburban living and many offer the luxury of a lakefront property.
The Waterfront Condominiums at Morse Lake began construction in 2005. These condos offer luxurious maintenance-free living. The buildings are located on the east side of the lake north of 236th Street (Jackson Street).
West of the lake, expanding home areas include the upscale Stillwater Cove and Morse Landing. Estate homes at Bear Slide, Calumet Farms, and Forest Bay offer a more rural setting.
All in all, the community presents an area ready with outstanding home value. Over half of the 433 platted home sites are ready for construction. Apartment living includes large and small duplexes and villa-like clusters scattered about the community. Condos along our southern shoreline provide other housing options.
Dotted through the town and surrounding area are a variety of churches for worship. Cicero is proud of the active community spirit its churches provide.
