What happened during the downturn in the economy to Morrisville? The town grew and grew and grew from  250 residents in 1980 to just over 21,000  happy residents today.

Update Morrisville (July 2013)
The town of Morrisville held its annual breakfast this week and Mayor Jackie Holcombe stated "Its good to be Morrisville" 
Residentially and commerically, this is how the town stacks up -
60% of their development is residential and 40% is commercial  which offsets their tax base.... currently set at 39 cents per $100 of valuation.
 Morrisville just got a  Triple A bond rating from Standard and Poor which allows the this charming town to borrow money at 2.5% !
Greenways (walkways) are another major focus for Morrisville.They are builidng a regional connector called the Crabtree Creek Greenway which will  connect Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville & RTP. The town projects it will be a 100 miles of walkable/ bikeable trail to connect this part of Wake County.
Two more projects, Morrisville Parkway,where the train tracks are, which will take approximately three years and NC54 Bypass Project which is the town’s number 1 priority-if you have ever been on the this road during rush hour you will know its stop and go, stop, stop, stop.....
So lots ahead for this wonderful town that curves in and our of Cary's borders.

Morrisville sits right beside the town of Cary, sometimes the lines blur with the two towns being so close to each other.
Morrisville was founded by Jeremiah Morris in 1852. He donated three acres to the North Carolina Railroad for a water station, woodshed and a couple of other buildings. He also established the first post office in Morrisville in 1852!
  For lovers of history please note that on   April 13, 1865, one of the last battles of the civil war took place in Morrisville, the battlefield is beside the Savannah community.  
  Around 1872,George Tonnoffski opened a liquor store and that same year, the  Page family built the Morrisville Hotel.
By the early 1870s, the Morrisville area had at least six general stores, a hotel, a steam sawmill, a cabinetmaker, a lawyer, and four physicians.
Not a large town, in 1880, the Town’s population was only 165. 1910 saw Samuel Horne's knitting-mill open up. On May 12, 1986 the current Town Seal was adopted.
Morrisville has grown quickly, in 1990 the population was 1,022, in 2010 it had grown to 18,576!
