The Chesters

Chester Borough and Chester Township, NJ

Main Street ChesterIn recent years the Chester, NJ area has undergone a transformation from a quiet rural village into a town renowned for shopping, schools, restaurants and cultural opportunities. While the Chesters boast many modern homes on sprawling lots, you also find many old buildings from the 1700-1800’s, notable for an historic old country look.

The borough of Chester encompassing approx. 1.5 sq. miles, is surrounded by almost 30 sq. miles of Chester Twp. More than 30% of the Township is preserved as open space.

The two municipalities share a public library, first aid squad, fire department, community pool, athletic programs, civic organizations and lower schools. High school students attend West Morris Mendham H. S. which is ranked # 4 in the state by New Jersey Monthly Magazine.
