The community's name has also been spelled "Morris Town" in the past.

Morristown was named for Duncan Morrison, a pioneer settler. The National Road ran through it.

In 1833, Morristown contained four taverns, four or five mercantile stores, two tanneries, a carding machine and a fulling mill.

Several blocks in downtown Morristown compose the Morristown Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
