Our History

For more than 35 years Morningstar has been recognized as one of the industry’s top operators and leading innovators. With an eye toward customer service and convenience, we have assembled a team of operations professionals whose sole goal is operational excellence. Morningstar got its start in the self-storage business in 1981, when our in-house construction and development team began building premier storage facilities in the region, establishing a legacy of experience, excellence and longevity under the Morningstar Storage brand. In 2004, we introduced a Marina Division to expand our breadth and to leverage our operating expertise in niche real estate markets. Since that time, we have continued to grow and expand with marina facilities located in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Today, Morningstar owns and operates several full-service marinas in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast in addition to about 100 self-storage facilities.

Morningstar Cares

At Morningstar Marinas, our managers and staff members are local to the communities where they work. As an active business, we think it’s important to play an active role in supporting and strengthening the communities we call home through our Morningstar Cares program. Throughout the year our marinas host tournaments and events to raise funds for local non-profits. Organizations we’ve supported over the years include local Boys & Girls Clubs, the Dragon Boat cancer survivors and Captain Don Dingman’s Hook the Future Kids Foundation.
