The town of Morrinsville was born around 1873. There was a need for housing for workers, a blacksmith shop a general store and the Jolly Cripple Hotel (later to be replaced by the Nottingham Castle Hotel) which still remains in the centre of town. The town was surveyed in 1882 and the first plan was deposited. It then consisted of only 10 streets and after WWII boomed with many new facilities required and a continuing growth today.
