Morrow is in many ways a product of historic settlement patterns that were based on the availability of natural resources, transportation links, and some element of chance. In 1837, the Little Miami Railroad began construction a line that would pass through Morrow. And with that, the old adage "if you build it, they will come" came true.
Early settlers capitalized on the natural power of the Little Miami River to build a grist mill at the confluence of Todds Fork. By 1844, the railroad laid track from Cincinnati to the grist mill and Morrow was born up on the site of James Miranda’s farm. A new stagecoach line connecting Cincinnati to Lancaster created more traffic and added to the village’s promise.
Today, you can still take a walk-through history as the old train bridge has been repurposed as a pedestrian walkway.
