LEXINGTON,KY – The US Census Bureau officially named Old Morrison the oldest Morrison in the United States. The result came as no surprise as Old Morrison, which is entering its 182nd year, surpassed the runner up, John Henry Morrison, by 84 years. Old Morrison had long been the second oldest Morrison, behind the town of Morrison, Virginia. After the town collapsed due to overwhelming debt, it was expected that our own Old Morrison was due to take over as the Oldest Morrison.
When interviewed, John Morrison seemed relatively unsurprised. “Well, I can’t really compete with a building,” Morrison said in between bites of applesauce, “But I still have hope for next year.”
