The Morrison Historical Society was renewed in 2008 to identify, protect, conserve, and interpret the historic and cultural resources of Morrison, Colorado, and areas immediately surrounding it. We aim to do this through the exchange of ideas and information by means of meetings, publications, and exhibits. Please support our efforts by joining MHS or by purchasing our products.

Background: The Morrison Historical Society was originally organized in the 1980s as a branch of the Jefferson County Historical Society in Evergreen, Colorado. The Morrison Historical District Museum, founded and managed by Lorene Horton until her death in 1991, was a private museum. After 1995, the Horton Collections moved into the old Town Office and began operations under Town auspices as the Morrison Heritage Museum. The Morrison Historical Society continued an active and advisory role in that museum until it was closed in 2004. Lila Horton plans to reopen the Museum as a private museum in fall 2010, and the MHS will assist in that effort.
