Welcome To 
HISTORIC MORRISTOWN
    Morristown was platted by Jonathan Zane and William Chapline in 1801 and named for an early settler and innkeeper, Duncan Morrison. The National Road, the major overland route to the West in the second quarter of the 19th century, was crucial in Morristown's development. The village is one of the best preserved examples of a National Road town and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Browse through our website to learn more.
