Morristown, Indiana is a small, quaint town with a surprising history. Back in World War II, many of Indiana's residents left to aid the war effort, which caused a labor shortage. To solve the problem, the state decided to fill the vacancies with Italian prisoners of war being held at Camp Atterbury. As the number of prisoners grew, and German prisoners of war were also added to the mix, additional, smaller camps were established around the state. Morristown was the site of one of these smaller camps, which housed 400 prisoners who worked at 17 canning facilities. You can learn more about the town's history at the local library.
Today, Morristown is a quiet, peaceful locale that provides the perfect escape from city life. Unsurprisingly, there aren't any dog parks here, and you won't find any big-city amenities. However, you'll find plenty of off-leash dog parks and quality veterinary clinics within a short drive of town. Indianapolis is also just 45 minutes away, so you and Fido can take a doggie day trip into the city any time you like!
