Morrison Luxury Real Estate
Morrison is a historic home rule municipality in Jefferson. Small as it may be, the town is known for its rich history, both social and natural. The 2000 census pegs the population size at 430 individuals. It is also situated 9 minutes away from Heritage West.
Morrison was founded by immigrant stonecutter George Morrison after he moved to the Mt. Vernon area in 1859. He was instrumental in establishing the town and toll house at Mt. Vernon which became a key stopover point for people from Denver going into the mines on the Rockies. After becoming an American citizen in 1862, he moved to Bear Creek where he found a stone milling company. He founded the town of Mt. Morrison in 1874. This town would later be the Morrison of today. Many of the stone buildings that Morrison built back then still stand today, a testament to his skill as a builder and stone cutter. The town would officially be incorporated in 1906.
