Kendall County has two primary ranges of low-lying hills formed by what is known as
an end moraine. Ransom, the more predominant of the two moraines, runs through the west and north-central part
of the county. This moraine has created elevations of over 800 feet (240 m), in contrast to elevations in
southern Kendall County that drop to the lower 500 feet (150 m) range.
Minooka, the other
major end moraine ridge in Kendall County, runs along its entire eastern border with Will
County. The two moraines intersect at almost a right angle in the township of Oswego. The only
