Morrisville is located in the northeast central region of North Carolina, where the North American Piedmont and Atlantic Coastal Plain regions meet. Also known as the "fall line" because it marks the elevation inland at which waterfalls begin to appear in creeks and rivers. Most of Morrisville features gently rolling hills that slope eastward toward the state's flat coastal plain. Its central Piedmont location situates the county just a couple hours west of Atlantic beaches and a couple hours east of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Morrisville's location adjacent to the Research Triangle Park, Raleigh- Durham International Airport, and Interstate 40 makes it an attractive location for offices, light industry and hotels, making it a well-conntected town to live in. Companies based in Morrisville include Lenovo, Tekelec, and QBE.
The Morrisville area offers a school system with the convenience of a flexible school schedule. Students have the opportunity to attend a tradtional school year or one that takes place all year-round. Students entering the 9th to 12th grade are subject to district restrictions.
The Morrisville area was originally named in 1852 after Jeremiah Morris. Morris donated land to the North Carolina Railroad for a depot, water tower, and other buildings. The town continued to grow as a result of the rail line and its location at the intersection of roads leading to Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Hillborough. The town was officially chartered in 1875 but was disincorporated in 1933. Eventually the town charter was restored in 1947.
