Mount Morris

Mount Morris is a village located in the Town of Mount Morris in Livingston County, New York, USA. The population was 2,986 at the 2010 census. The village and town are named after Robert Morris.The Village of Mount Morris is at the northeastern entrance to Letchworth State Park, which contains a scenic gorge and triple waterfall on the Genesee River. The village is in the northern part of the Town of Mt. Morris.HistoryThe community was first called "Allen Hill" and "Richmond Hill" by early settler Ebenezer Allen. The Village of Mount Morris was incorporated in 1835. It was then named after Robert Morris, the financier of the American Revolution, and later owner of The Morris Reserve, from which the lands around Mount Morris were sold to settlers. It was suggested that these lands were sold at unfairly low prices to friends of the Morris estate, in an attempt to create something akin to an oligarchical rule by landowners in the area.The main trade route in the town's early days was the Genesee Valley Canal which ran from the Erie Canal at Rochester to Wellsville. The Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway have built hiking trails along some of the canal route. The canal was abandoned in the 1870s and later used as a railroad right of way for a succession of railroads, which eventually consolidated into the Pennsylvania Railroad.
