Morris Township

Welcome to Morris Township

A peaceful enclave full of suburban serenity and tony elegance
Morris Township is a prime example of classic East Coast beauty. Stately brick mansions are set back against lush rolling hills. Ivy climbs the walls of historical monuments, and farms and golf courses sprawl over the verdant landscape. Named for colonial governor Lewis Morris, Morris Township surrounds the city of Morristown, which is known as the area’s urban center. This perfect partnership of countryside and city provides residents with both sophisticated urbanity and rural tranquility. Morris Township’s reputation as a wealthy bedroom community brings high-profile residents looking for easy access to New York City sans the frenzy of hectic city life.
Often called “the doughnut,” Morris Township completely encircles Morristown and even shares the same zip code and school district. Morris Township boasts an incredibly rich history and was, in fact, incorporated as a town in the early 1700s, long before the flashy heartbeat of Morristown rose to fame. Today, Morris Township pampers residents with highly coveted real estate and stunning neighborhoods.
