Morris Township, NJ

Township of Morris SealMorris Township, incorporated March 25, 1740, is a residential community comprising an area of 15.3 square miles with a population of approximately 22,000. It is an area of rich historical significance with George Washington's Continental Army having camped during the winters of 1777 and 1779-80 in the deep snows of Jockey Hollow, which is now part of the National Park System.

Today there is a pleasing mix of homes including some built in colonial times, large older homes from the early 1900's, new and newer homes, and condominiums.
