Settled in 1790, the town was named for Governor Anson P. Morrill, in office (1855-1858) at the time of incorporation.

According to a reports by the Maine Department of Fisheries and Wildlife,

“Cross Pond [in Morrill] is a picturesque body of water . . . . An extensive bog system is associated with this shallow pond, making it an interesting place for wildlife and plant enthusiasts. Small boats and canoes can be launched at an unimproved site off the Cross Road.”

“An old mill dam in the village of Morrill forms Smiths Mill Pond. This is a shallow, weedy flowage surrounded by farmland, woodland, and marsh. An unimproved landing suitable for launching canoes and small boats is located at the outlet near Route 131.”
