Morrow's journey from unhewn acreage to up-and-coming city center began in the early 19th century when a budding financier, Daniel Tyler, bought out the bankrupt Monroe Railroad and Banking Company and chartered his own business, the Macon and Western Railroad Company. Following 1820s Georgia Governor William Lumpkin's push for a rail system throughout the state, Tyler extended the tracks north into Atlanta, crossing through what is now the city of Morrow. "Morrow Station," as it was then known, was named after Radford E. Morrow, a local plantation owner boasting more than 1,000 acres of land where his 12-room mansion stood on the corner of Morrow Road and Highway 54.
