About Morris County, NJ
Created in 1739 and steeped in historic lore and tradition, Morris County is a bustling metropolitan area consisting of 39 municipalities in a 475 square mile area housing more than 421,000 residents. Towns within the county vary in size from tiny Victory Gardens Borough with a population of 1,314 to Parsippany-Troy Hills Township with almost 48,500 residents.
Figuring prominently in the Revolutionary War, Morris County became known as “The Military Capital of the American Revolution” as Gen. George Washington and his Continental Army made their winter encampments near Morristown during two different winters.
During the 1930s and 40s, some of the country’s most prominent and wealthy business leaders, who had resided for decades in large mansions that lined Madison Avenue dubbed “Millionaires Row,” sought refuge from the rising cost of living in NYC. They discovered the idyllic Morris County, with its isolation, ideal climate and unspoiled countryside, and built large country estates there. Within a few years, it was claimed that more millionaires lived within a one mile radius of the Morristown Green than anywhere in the world.
Beautiful homes and gardens are still located throughout Morris County, many of them situated on land of the former estates of these millionaires. Multi-million dollar shopping centers and highway merchandising malls, discount houses, chain stores and food markets all sprung up to support the burgeoning population.
With its commerce once based in iron mining, Morris County evolved into a major manufacturing and service economy hosting industries such as finance, insurance, pharmaceuticals, research and development and technology. The area employs over 240,000 people with many working at the world headquarters or offices of Fortune 500 businesses such as Honeywell, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, BASF and Bayer.
Morris County is a bastion of geographical, cultural and historic landmarks and attractions offering a wide range of leisure and recreational activities for its citizens and visitors.
Declared a National Natural Landmark in 1966, the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is the remnant of the bottom of the once-mighty Glacial Lake Passaic that about 15,000 years ago stretched 30 by 10 miles in what is presently northern New Jersey. In 1968, part of the refuge became the first area within the Department of the Interior to be designated as wilderness. The refuge provides vast recreational opportunities for visitors as well as protecting a habitat for wildlife.
Morristown National Historical Park commemorates the sites of General Washington and the Continental army’s winter encampment for six months from December 1779 to June 1780, where they survived through what would be the coldest winter on record. The park maintains a museum and library collection related to the encampments, George Washington and items from the pre- and post-revolutionary war. Four sites important during the war are part of the park including Jockey Hollow, the Ford Mansion, Fort Nonsense and the New Jersey Brigade Encampment site.
Morris County residents enjoy a wide range of geological and ecological experiences at the area known as Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area. With over 1,500 acres of rugged trails, fields, forests, rock outcroppings and wetlands, the highest point in the park offers a magnificent view of the New York City skyline. Hikers can observe unusual glacial oddities, such as Tripod Rock, a 180-ton boulder balanced on three smaller boulders deposited by the Wisconsin Glacier over 18,000 years ago.
The George Griswold Frelinghuysen Arboretum features collections of plant life, including ornamental grasses, spring-blooming shrubs and perennials, summer shrubs, fall fruit and foliage and shade trees. In front of the main house, is the Great Lawn, reminiscent of an English county manor, that hosts outdoor concerts in the warmer months. Just off the Great Lawn, is a Braille trail designed for hands-on exploration.
The Morris Museum, one of New Jersey’s most dynamic cultural institutions, celebrates art, science, history and the performing arts and serves 300,000 persons each year. Celebrating 50 years, the museum’s Bickford Theatre, makes the Morris the only accredited museum in the country with a theatre, is a cultural hub for the performing arts. It plays host to two film series and unique film festivals, traveling professional productions; a lecture series, storytelling workshops, and jazz, classical and community concerts.
