Morrison: The Book

It's been more than 30 years since a Morrison history book was published. To rectify that, MHS signed a book contract with Arcadia Publishing last fall. The book will be in their Images of America series, a 128-page format with about 200 photos of the town's history. It should be available for purchase early next year.

Morrison history in print, to the best of our knowledge, consists of the following two books:

Morrison Memory Album, by Lorene Horton and Mary Helen Crain, was published in 1976; a few copies are still available through the Horton House Bed & Breakfast. It's currently also on

A View from Mt. Morrison, by Samuel Arnold, was published in 1974 and is out of print. If interested, try searching for it on ebay.

Morrison is, of course, mentioned briefly or in chapters of several histories of Jefferson County. We'll try to list some of those in a future post for your reference.
