Colona is a city in Henry CountyIllinois, along the Green River. It is part of the Quad Cities metropolitan area. The population was 5,099 at the 2010 census, down from 5,173 at the 2000 census.

The City of Colona was created in 1997 by the merger of the former City of Green Rock and the former Village of Colona.[3] It was the first community in Illinois to merge by popular vote.[4]

Colona is a quiet community of 5,000 residents with a rural feel but close to the urban life of the Quad Cities. In 1997, the Cities of Green Rock and Colona merged into one larger city and chose the name Colona. The City is uniquely located at the intersection of four interstate highways, two Illinois highways and three bodies of water.

As of the census[8] of 2000, there were 5,173 people, 1,936 households, and 1,473 families living in the city. The population density was 1,479.1 people per square mile (570.7/km2).

The three bodies of water surrounding Colona provide ample opportunities to participate in a variety of water activities such as fishing, boating, rafting, or tubing along the Rock River. The Green River provides fishing opportunities. The other body of water, the historic Hennepin Canal, is a favorite fishing spot for the dedicated fishermen of the area and has a dedicated bike and trail path running along it. It is also the finish line for the Hennepin One Hundred race. The race covers 100 miles along the canal beginning in Sterling and ending at Timbrook Field in Colona.

There were 2,010 housing units at an average density of 574.7 per square mile (221.7/km2). The racial makeup of the city was 96.58% White, 0.31% African American, 0.25% Native American, 0.17% Asian, 1.70% from other races, and 0.99% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.06% of the population.

There were 1,936 households, out of which 37.1% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 61.5% were married couples living together, 9.7% had a female householder with no husband present, and 23.9% were non-families. 20.0% of all households were made up of individuals, and 7.5% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.67 and the average family size was 3.05.

Another unique fact for the city is that it is split between two school districts with the division between them being one of the intersecting interstates. Residents living east of the interstate attend Geneseo schools for grades K-12. Residents living west of the interstate attend Colona School for grades K-8 and United Township High School for grades 9-12 located in East Moline, Illinois. There are several colleges located in the Quad Cities. They are Blackhawk College in Moline, a two-year school; QC Campus of Western Illinois in Moline, a four-year school; Augustana College in Rock Island, a private four-year school; and St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, a private four-year school.
