City of Morristown Welcomes You

Everything You Need to Know

This southern Minnesota community is based on the Cannon river and is best known for its beautiful dam.  About 987 people call this quiet, neighborly community their home.  While Morristown is a small city, we are located just 8 miles from Faribault and I-35, 15 miles from Waseca and 25 miles from Owatonna.

There is plenty to do in Morristown.  With several lakes in the area and the Sakatah State Trail that runs right through the city, there is plenty of outdoor recreation.  We invite you to learn more about our beautiful city.

Join us for our Annual Dam Days celebration the first weekend after Memorial Day!
