Welcome to Morrisville!
Part of the Research Triangle metropolitan area, the 8.3-square-miles of land that Morrisville sits on was originally the site of a depot, water tower and other buildings for the the North Carolina Railroad back in the 1850s. As time passed, the communities continued to grow around the hub of the depot, and in 1875, the town was officially chartered. While quite a bit has happened between the 1870s and today, Morrisville has maintained its reputation for rich community bonds—with a few extra amenities and things to do thrown in.
A unique mix of small-town charm and big-city perks, Morrisville offers residents the best of both worlds. If you’re in the market for a Wake County home, you should explore what Morrisville has to offer.
