Not long after the first Europeans set foot in the new world, the land was parceled and sold. As far back as William Penn, in the 1600s, the land was being accounted for. Throughout the years, the area now known as Morrisville was owned by many different people through many different subdivisions. As we know, Robert Morris and George Clymer were both large tract land owners in Morrisville. Their large tracts of land were broken down into smaller parcels as the area became more populated. Houses and other buildings were constructed on these parcels and roads and streets were being mapped out. Since that time most of those building have been lost and replaced, but there are still many houses in Morrisville that are well over a hundred years old.
