A Brief History of          Merry Meadows

        In December of 2010, Morris Meadows changed its name to Merry Meadows. The original owner, Clyde Morris, retired and sold the business to his daughter. The proud history of the Morris family still resonates throughout the counryside. Ancestors of the Morris family came to America from Wales, United Kingdom on a sailing vessel that sailed as far as possible up the Susquehanna River during the early 1700's. Upon their arrival, they began working for their pay in return for their passage to the New World. When paid in full, they proceeded to walk to find land of their own, and finally settled here in Maryland. A copy of the first recorded land deed, writing on goat skin on December 4, 1793, is on display in our registration lobby. Careful examination reveals the name of Samuel Morris, Jr., and the tract of land known as "Morris' Choice".    

                Over the years, the land acreage varied as did the occupation of the Morris ancestors. A son of the first landowner was a decorated veteran of the War of 1812. A brother- in- law of the third generation owner was killed at Gettysburg during the Civil War. Their bodies lay n the nearby Mt. Zion United Methodist Cemetary. Clyde Morris served in World War II, and his son is a highly decorated, disabled veteran of the Vietnam War. Not too often will you find 7 generations of one family that have lived and worked on the same land for over 200 years.

            From the late 1950's to the 1970's, Clyde bought 500 acres of contiguouus open and heavily forested land. Most of the land was divided between grain and cattle farming. There was a huge herd of Angus cows and calves that roamed the hillsides. These Angus produced several grand champions at well- known livestock shows. With the growing demands of recreation and family camping, in 1970, Clyde decided to turn his attention and 200 acres to recreation. He spent the next forty years designing, creating, and building Morris Meadows Recreation Farm. It is the desire of Clyde's daughter and family to maintain the same principles and high standards established by her parents. "Our goal here at Merry Meadows is for you and your family to enjoy the country, the activities, and the local and state attractions, but most of all to have fun as a family together".

                      Avoid heavy traffic and costly towing by storing your RV with us

          The following are some important things to know about Storage:

  2. We do not store RV's older than 15 years old
  3. All RV's in the storage area must have current license plates on the RV at all times (otherwise, the RV cannot be stored here)
  4. You must complete the Storage application. There must be a copy of the RV title and current registration on file at all times while the RV is the storage lot. The name(s) that appear on the current registration must sign the storage application. It is your responsibility to provide Merry Meadows with a copy of the current registration each year.
  5. We do not send out statements. It is your responsibility to keep the storage account current. You have a 28 day grace period before a $1.00 per week late fee is applied to your account. You are allowed to pay up to 2 months storage in advance. The initial payment should be a t least 4 weeks storage plus towing fees (if applicable). The account must be current before the RV is towed.

  6. There will be an additional charge if the RV hitch has a lock on it or if the tires are flat
  7. If you have a reservation to camp at Merry Meadows, it is your responsibility to advise the hostess taking your camping reservation, that your RV is in our storage and needs to be towed to the site.Your reservation will then be flagged for towing.
  8. When you drop the RV off to be towed into the storage area, you must notify the office that the RV is on the parking lot to be towed into storage. Please do not block the late arrival sites when dropping off the RV.
