The first settlers of the town began the community around 1804, but the village was not permanently settled until 1808.

During the opening days of the War of 1812, a naval battle took place between two warships in the river opposite the village.

Due to the lack of water power, early milling was accomplished by a windmill (1825) and later by a steam-powered mill.

The Land Office, Jacob Ford House, McConnell's Windmill, Samuel Stocking House, Paschal Miller House, Morristown Schoolhouse, United Methodist Church, and Wright's Stone Store are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

On June 27, 2018, village residents voted to dissolve the village with a yes vote of 130–47. It took effect on December 31, 2019.
