A Brief History of Merry
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".
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.
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".
