Captain Albert Morris and his wife built this three story Queen Anne styled Victorian house in 1895. It is one of the centerpieces of Reedville architecture. For instance, it is featured by the Reedville Museum in the Christmas lighting season.

It is now a bed and breakfast. The elegant lower floor features "a tiled entrance hall and formal living and dining rooms that typify the wealth of the late 19th and early 20th century" industralist/entrepreneur. Captain Morris, along with his brother-in-law James Fisher, owned and operated the Morris-Fisher Menhaden Factory.

According to their site: "The Morris House offers spectacular water views, a private dock, spacious suites, Jacuzzi's, fireplaces, antique collections,full breakfasts and more. A seperate, two bedroom cottage is available daily or weekly!"
