Originally a small town on the prairie, Morris is currently home to a historic campus of the University of Minnesota, the Stevens County courthouse, a wealth of business and industry including a major health-care hub, manufacturing that serves a world-wide clientele, and a host of educational, recreational and social opportunities.
With the Pomme de Terre river flowing in Upper and Lower Pomme lakes, Morris boasts a growing network of hiking and biking trails, canoeing, fishing and boating options and numerous parks that hold campgrounds, picnic shelters, a skateboard park, athletic fields and more green than the eye can see.
