The Copper Turret is a popular downtown eatery since students can use their Morrisville State College ID card for payment.
The Copper Turret is a college-owned restaurant located just off campus in the center of Morrisville, N.Y. In addition to its role as a fully-operational dining establishment, the popular eatery serves as a learning laboratory for students in hospitality-related majors.
The building that now houses the Copper Turret was originally built in 1814. The property boasted some unique design features in the 19th century, such as a cast iron sidewalk and fence, and a few remain today, including stained glass over the front entrance, intricate fireplaces and beveled edges on windows which are leaded in their metal frames.
The burgundy building, crowned with a gleaming copper turret, has been lovingly renovated to showcase these original design features which have been complemented with copper accents on the fireplaces, a copper top on the bar, a vaulted ceiling in the Turret room and beautifully reproduced windows throughout.
