Borough of Florham Park

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.


Historical Highlight
It was called Eisenhower grease and it was developed by an inventor named Arnold “Red” Morway at Exxon Research and Engineering here in Florham Park. What it did was waterproof motor equipment of military tanks and trucks and other vehicles during World War II, something critically important in the speed of amphibious Allied invasions in France, such as the legendary D-Day invasion in Normandy. It was also used by Lt. General George Patton’s forces in Sicily and campaigns in the Pacific.
