History:  

MORRIS, a city in Morris and Darnen Townships and the county seat, platted in 1869, incorporated as a village February 21, 1878, and as a city in 1902, was named in honor of Charles A. F. Morris, who was born in Ireland in 1827 and died in Excelsior, Minn., June 2, 1903. He came to the United States in 1849 and to St. Paul in 1854; was connected with the engineering departments of several railroads, among them being the Manitoba and the Northern Pacific; removed to Oregon but a few years later returned to Minnesota and resided in Excelsior. The city became the county seat on February 3, 1872. It began as a tent town following the arrival of the Great Northern Railway and Northern Pacific Railroad; the first building was postmaster Henry B. Wolff's general store, where the post office was established in 1871, moving from John B. Folsom's farm at Pape de Terre (1870-71). The city is the site of the University of Minnesota at Morris. Morris Township was organized on January 11, 1873.
