Florham Park Historic Preservation Commission

Throughout Florham Park’s transformation from a rural farm settlement to a modern suburb, one famous building has withstood the test of time: the Little Red Schoolhouse. This classic early American schoolhouse has held court at the town’s crossroads since the borough itself was little more than two dirt roads. The Florham Park Historic Preservation Commission oversees the beloved 150-year-old schoolhouse and the Hancock Cemetery.

Of Special Note:

  • Florham Park was initially settled in the late 1600s
  • This rural area became so well known its high-quality brooms that it was briefly known as Broomtown
