Jeremiah Morrow Room

Jeremiah Morrow was born in the colony of Pennsylvania. He moved to the Northwest Territory in 1795, and settled in southern Warren County on the Little Miami River near the community of Foster. He never actively sought political office, but when asked he felt it was his duty to serve.

Morrow in his long career was a member of the territorial legislature, Ohio’s one and only member of the U.S. House of Representative for 10 years, a U.S. senator, and governor of Ohio. He also was the first president of the Little Miami Railroad and a member of the board of trustee of Miami University. Henry Clay once said, “No man ... ever commanded or deserved the implicit confidence of Congress more than Jeremiah Morrow.”

The town of Morrow in Warren County, Morrow County and the Jeremiah Morrow Bridge on I-71, the highest bridge in Ohio, are all named after him.

The Jeremiah Morrow Room is located on our fourth floor and has a queen sized bed.
