Morrisville is a small borough located in lower Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The area dates back as far as the mid-1620s, when it was known as Crewcorne. It wasn’t recognized as a borough until 1804 and was named after Robert Morris, a financier of the American Revolution.
Around that same time, a bridge was built across the Delaware River and effectively connected Morrisville to Trenton, New Jersey. This sparked a lot of growth and development in the area. By 1890, the population grew to over 1,000 people and peaked at 11,300 people in the 1970s.
Today, the population of Morrisville is just under 10,000 people, which is 1,000 more than 2010. The borough is situated along the Delaware River with easy access to Trenton, NJ — either through the Lower Trenton Bridge, the Calhoun St. Bridge, or the Trenton Morrisville Toll Bridge.
Some of the most exciting things to do and see in Morrisville include the Falls of the Delaware River, the Delaware Canal, Graystone Woods, Williamson Park, Bridge Street Golf, Morrisville Riverfront Preserve, Cleveland Ave. Park, the Morrisville Dog Park, Summerseat, and more.
