Morristown Real Estate
Morristown serves as the region’s center for commerce and essential shopping, services, industry and many State of Vermont branch offices. It is situated in a valley along the winding Lamoille River and is nestled among the Green Mountain and Worcester ranges.
People often ask the difference between Morrisville and Morristown. Morrisville is an incorporated village located within the town of Morristown and offers many amenities, including the local schools, Municipal Offices and Copley Hospital.
Morristown is bestowed with the nickname “the heartbeat of Lamoille County.” When the first settlers came to the area they brought their particular styles of buildings with them, traditional New England Victorian style homes next to red brick buildings reminiscent of New York. Many of the commercial buildings in the downtown have second-story false fronts that disguise their pitched roofs. It is a style characteristic of 19th-century railroad towns and it gives downtown Morrisville a unique personality.
Morristown continues small-town traditions and a strong sense of community. Morristown enjoys festivals and hosts many events throughout the year, including Rocktoberfest in autumn, the Oxbow Music Festival, LACiNg Up for Cancer in early summer, and the Festival of Lights in December.
Downtown Morrisville’s Oxbow Riverfront Park, created by a bend in the Lamoille River, is home to athletic fields, the community garden and a dog walk trail. On Wednesday evenings in the summer listen to free live music at the pavilion (Wednesday Night Live).
For outdoor recreation, Morristown is easy to get to and a wonderful place to explore in every season.
The Green River Reservoir is amazing for camping, kayaking and canoeing during the spring, summer and autumn. The famous Long Trail traverses the mountain ranges located here.
The Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, a four-season recreation trail, passes right through downtown and is designed for cross-country skiers, snowmobilers, cyclists and walkers.
