Created by an Act of the State Legislature on March 15, 1738 separating it from Hunterdon County, the county derived its name from Colonel Lewis Morris, then Governor of the Province of NJ. The county is known as the "Military Capital of the Revolution", and each of its 39 municipalities played some part in the war effort and contains something of historical importance to this day. Preserving this proud heritage falls to the Morris County Heritage Commission, Historical Society and numerous other groups.
Welcome to the Borough of Florham Park, which is often referred to as "A Community of Volunteers". Florham Park is a small suburban community located in south-east corner of Morris County, located approximately 30 miles west of New York City. The Borough's convenient location to trains, buses, and major airports, and a friendly small town atmosphere makes it is easy to understand why it is one of Morris County's most desirable communities to live in. The New York JETS now call Florham Park home with their training facility and corporate headquarters located there. Come and enjoy excellent schools, a wide variety of recreational activities, a beautiful library as well as many other activities such as our Summer Gazebo Concerts and our awesome 4th of July Parade and Fireworks Display.
