Centered on its historic Green, the Town of Morristown is a socially and ethnically diverse community offering a wide range of amenities to residents and visitors alike. A state-designated “regional center,” Morristown is the County Seat of Morris County and the home of both Morristown Memorial Hospital and a wide range of cultural facilities.  George Washington really did sleep here, for Morristown served as his headquarters for two different winter encampments during the Revolutionary War.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named Morristown one of its “Dozen Distinctive Destinations.”  In and around Morristown are a wide number of historic attractions and museums. Morristown’s Historic District features many Victorian-era homes, including that of famed political cartoonist Thomas Nast.  The Community Theater in downtown Morristown offers a full slate of “name,” local and children’s events.  Downtown Morristown restaurants and shops offer something for everyone.

New York City is easily accessible from Morristown, which has a train station on New Jersey Transit’s Morris & Essex line that provides service to Penn Station in Manhattan, approximately one hour away. The Morristown Parking Authority provides ample downtown parking for motorists making Morristown a destination.  Morristown Municipal Airport is the second-busiest general aviation airport in New Jersey, while Newark International Airport is a mere 30 minutes away.

Morristown is totally surrounded geographically by the separate municipality of Morris Township with whom the Town shares a school district, a library and various youth sports leagues.
