The village of Morrow was planned in 1844 by William H. Clement, George Keck, and Clark Williams. It was named in honor of Jeremiah Morrow, a local farmer and state legislator who served as an Ohio Senator, U.S. Congressman, U.S. Senator, and Ohio Governor.
Morrow was developed on the grounds of a farm owned by James Miranda. It was strategically situated in the rail corridor planned by the Little Miami Railroad. The building of the railroad commenced in 1837. By 1844, the line had reached Deerfield, now known as South Lebanon. Later that same year, the railroad extended to Morrow. At that time, the line was constructed of scrap iron and wooden rail. It wasn’t until 1848 that Mr. E.W. Woodward arrived from England to lay the T-rails on the Little Miami Railroad.

The railroad still plays an important part in Morrow’s culture and social impact. In its retirement it has become home to the Little Miami Scenic Trail, providing endless recreational opportunities for people of all ages.
The railroad also provided humorist Lew Sully with the material he needed to compose the famous poem “I Want To Go To Morrow.” According to legend, Mr. Sully overheard a conversation between a Kentucky farmer and a Cincinnati railroad ticket agent. The agent decided to have some fun at the farmer’s expense, and thus the basis for the poem was born. It is displayed on the introduction page.
