I grew up in Morrilton Arkansas many years ago and have seen a lot of changes over the years. At one time the town had more to offer in terms of work. There have been several different industries opened there and for some reason failed and had to close their doors. This is most likely due to the fact it is such a small town. With larger towns nearby it makes it convenient to shop, work and find entertainment elsewhere.
On the other hand, many students are choosing to attend the college in Morriltown because it is cheaper. UACCM offers tuition for about half the cost of larger universities. This gaining popularity has allowed the college to grow and therefore helps the town to thrive.
It would be my wish in the future to see a couple good businesses that can offer a fair wage come back to Morriltown again. Since more people are coming to college here and if new business would come to town, Morriltown could possibly grow.

It is a small but growing city with many fun things to do. With the Arkansas River close by and the train station there too, it makes for a small town feel but with bigger city attractions.
Morrilton is a small town with all the necessities, low traffic roads, good restaurants, and an upcoming art scene. Only 20 minutes from Arkansas Tech University or University of Central Arkansas.
