Gentlemen – some say that New York City is a great place to meet women, since the male-female ratio in the Big Apple is 52.6% female, 47.4% male. Well, step aside New Yawkers, Morriistown Indiana is the new leader at 53% female, 47% male.
Just a half-hour (about 26 miles) southeast of Indianapolis, Morristown is home to over 1,200 residents, per the 2010 census. No boomtown, it’s the tortoise of towns, growing slowly and methodically since its founding 175 years ago.
That was in 1828. The third town in Shelby County, it’s said to have been named for the Rev. S. Morrison, a pioneer preacher (note to conspiracy theorists: is it coincidence that one of the town’s founders was a “Samuel Morrison?”).
Around the turn of the century, Morristown had grown to nearly 600 residents and had been defined as ”a center of commerce and society with a post office, railroad, and express office.” Today that could be a suburban household with three kids who do karate, choir and soccer. Throughout the years, Morristown has been a quiet place to live with a primarily agricultural economy and that it prides itself on family and education. Morristown schools have been recognized by both the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the state of Indiana.
Points of Interest about Morristown:
- Legend has it that, on the hill in downtown Morristown, a treasure was once hidden … by aborigines. Interesting. What would prehistoric treasure consist of?
- The Everhart family, of the late 20th century, made its home in Morristown. One of those, Elisha Everhart, migrated to Indianapolis to make his fortune in retail display.
The Society of Indiana Pioneers has defined a pioneer (in Shelby County) as an individual who resided there on or before December 31, 1830.
