The Morristown Green

Park Place * Morristown * NJ 07960

The Morristown Green is the heart and soul of Morristown. The public space is privately owned and operated by the Trustees of the Morristown Green who provide for its maintenance and capital improvements, and oversee events that take place on the Green. Historic signage on the Green tells the story of the importance of the space to Morris County’s development. The Green began appearing on maps in 1715 and has a fascinating 300+ years history.  Once a military parade ground, common pasture land and a pleasure park, today the Green is a gathering place for Morristown residents and visitors.

Of Special Note:

  • Take a photo with the Founding Fathers-Washington, Hamilton and Lafayette             
  • Read the historic signage throughout the park                   
  • A tavern on the Green was home to General George Washington in 1777
