These landmarks represent a distinctive style of construction and are enduring monuments to George Morrisons contributions to Jefferson Countys history. Stone for these structures was quarried in his "red sandstone quarry" at the end of the Dakota Hogback near Morrison. Building stone was also shipped to Denver, where it now comprises parts of the Brown Palace, Union Station, and "many of Denver's early day mansions" (Brown, 1976). The historic Town of Morrison is a Home Rule Municipality in Jefferson County, Colorado, United States. The population was 430 at the 2000 census. It is notably where Red Rocks Amphitheatre is located.
