Happy 275th, Mendham Township!

On the 29th of March, the Township of Mendham celebrates 275 years of officially being a township.

Morris County, originally formed in 1738, was first made up of three townships: Morris, Hanover, and Pequannock. Mendham Township was established in 1749.

With its vast natural resources and key waterways used to power its mills and foundries, the area initially grew as an industrial community. Over time it evolved with a more agricultural focus, and then ultimately the residential and small business community we know it as today.

Go to to read the original official declaration of Mendham Township and to view maps showing the evolution of its boundaries in Morris County maps in 1749, 1806 and 1906.
