Morson History

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the fishing industry on Lake of the Woods began to develop and several fish processing plants and canneries were built around Morson. This brought an influx of new workers and residents to the town.

During the 1920s and 1930s, Morson became a popular destination for tourists and sportsmen, drawn to the area for its excellent fishing and hunting opportunities. This led to the establishment of several resorts and lodges in the town, which remain an important part of the local economy to this day.

During World War II, Morson was home to a radar station and a pilot training base, employing many local residents in these facilities.

After the war, the region’s transition from commercial fishing to sport fishing became more complete.
