Morrisville is a borough rich with history and community pride. Located at the Falls of the Delaware River, the borough was named after Robert Morris, the financier of the American Resolution. Directly across the Delaware River from Trenton, New Jersey, the borough boasts of having city life with a small town feel.
Morrisville is a borough with a devoted council, low crime rates and several cultural and historical places to visit. Residents and tourists are encouraged to visit Greystones, the historic site marking William Penn's land treaty with the local Lenni Lenape natives. This location is said to be where Pennsylvania began.
