Nestled between Joint Andrew Air Force Base and Washington D.C., The Town of Morningside is the “Gateway to the Nation’s Capital”. With a population of 2,015 (Census 2010), the Town is known for its friendly people, events and its ideal location. Morningside has a Mayor and Town Council form of government, in addition we operate our own Police, Code Enforcement, and Public Works Departments. The Town is also known for being the home of one of the busiest volunteer fire departments in Prince George’s County, Morningside VFD Station 827 servicing Morningside and adjacent communities.
There are many notable things about the Town to include its 3 years and running recognition with a “Banner Town” Status. Municipalities who are designated as Banner Cities/Towns are recognized among their peers as active participant in showcasing municipal government and how it works.
There are also events throughout the year and this provides an opportunity to interact with the employees, Mayor and Council. Some, but definitely not all events include Spring Clean Up Day, 4th of July Parade and Fireworks, National Night Out, Trunk-or-Treat, Senior Luncheons, and Breakfast with “Santa”. These are just some of the reasons our residents proudly call this great small Town, "HOME". The Town encourages all residents, businesses, and community member to monitor the calendar and participate in upcoming events.
