Morrisville History Center at Town Hall

As part of the 150th anniversary commemoration of the Civil War, the Town of Morrisville installed a special Morrisville History Center in the lobby of Town Hall located at 100 Town Hall Drive. The History Center tells the story of Morrisville and the Civil War skirmish that occurred here in 1865.

The History Center includes exhibits, a touch screen with short video vignettes, and a video viewing room that features several longer videos. The longer videos include "Jeremiah's Dream", which tells the history of Morrisville set in the context of national events, and "Twilight of Sabers" , which recounts the Civil War skirmish that took place in Morrisville on April 13, 1865.

The History center is open whenever Town Hall is open, which is generally Monday through Friday 8am-5pm, except between Memorial Day and Labor Day when Town Hall closes at 12pm on Friday. For more information, please call 919.463.6200.
