Far Hills center was originally a religious center with a farm and small church built in 1758. Until recently Far Hills was a quiet villiage consisting mainly of farms and a few residential neighborhoods. In 1882 a railway station was constructed for easy access to New York City. This allowed city dwellers to relocate to the picturesque area and commute to Manhattan.

Far Hills and the neighboring town of Bernardsville share a public library, first aid squad, fire department, community pool, athletic programs, civic organizations and lower schools. Far Hills information obtained by Joy Kurtz.
