Welcome to Morley

Welcomr to Morley

Morley, Missouri was surveyed and laid out by John Morley, a railroad engineer in about 1870. During the latter part of the 19th century and early 20th century both melons and cotton were important products of the area. The Iron Mountain Railroad and later the Missouri Pacific Railroad ran through the town. Several cotton gins were built in the town, but none exist today. Morley sits on the historic Hwy. 61 and is a wonderful, quiet and friendly community located in the Scott County Central School District between Sikeston and Cape Girardeau, MO.
