Morrill is situated in the central part of Waldo County,
6½ miles west of Belfast. It is bounded on the north by Knox, east by Waldo and Belfast, south by Belmont,
and west by Searsmont and Montville. The surface of the town is uneven, but with very little waste land. Morey
and Rowe hills are probably the highest elevations, though these have no great altitude. The soil is sandy in parts,
and in others clay loam. Hay and potatoes are the chief crops. The usual forest trees of the region thrive here.
Cross Pond, in this town, contains about 100 acres, and another—Dolliff—about 50 acres. The chief water-power is
at the village on the east on the Passagassawakeag Stream. There are here shingle and stave mills, and a horse-rake
factory. Morrill is on the Belfast and Kendall’s Mills stage-line. The nearest railroad station is at Belfast.
The town roads are very good. There is one bridge 120 feet in length, constructed of stone and timber.
