George Washington held several meetings in Morristown and with many talented and skilled residents of the time, Morristown was the premier destination for trade, with local industries providing support for resources during the war. St. Patrick’s Day was declared a holiday by George Washington in 1780 in Morristown and today, this historic town is brimming with things to learn from the past and new experiences to maintain its thriving and bright future.
