Morristown is a census-designated place in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States. It is about 50mi northwest of Phoenix, at the junction of State Route 74 and U.S. Route 60.Morristown is home to the Morristown Elementary School District.The Morristown Store, formerly the Morristown Hotel, also located within the town, is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.Much of Morristown is within the municipal planning area of Surprise, and Surprise intends to eventually annex the area. The portion of Morristown south of US 60, however, exists in small area between the planning areas of Surprise, Buckeye and Wickenburg, where neither city has yet expressed a planned interest in expanding. This area is named after Morristown, New Jersey.Morristown is also the home of internet sensation "Tardar Sauce, the Grumpy Cat".HistoryThe first name for the present day community of Morristown was Vulture Siding, but in 1897 after the importance of Vulture Mine had faded, the name of the place changed to Hot Springs Junction because at this station passengers disembarked from the train to take a stage to Castle Hot Springs. The name was later changed to Morristown to honor the first inhabitant at the place, George Morris, the discoverer of the Mack Morris Mine in Gila County. The first Post Office was established on December 30, 1897 by Lee H. Landis a postmaster of Wells Fargo Station in 1903.
